We're not exactly ready to downgrade #Panicmode just yet, but at least reports from earlier today on the state of Drew Storen's right arm were encouraging. MRI came up clean: no UCL or tendon damage, just inflammation.
"His arm is in great shape. I imagine he will probably rest it for two or three days. ... He should be fine to start the season. He is in shape, his arm is in shape. He is not going to have a drop off in a week to 10 days."

And here's Storen, talking playoffs:
"We expect to be playing in the playoffs. What happens at the end of the year is more important than right now. I think that’s kind of nice, to be able to look at the big picture. You don’t want to cut a corner now and have it come back to bite you when it really matters."
