Speedy recovery wishes

Wishing Ben Sheets a speedy recovery.

Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery on Sheets in Birmingham, Ala., repairing a partial tear in the pitcher's right flexor tendon. Sheets said that while Andrews set no timetable, the doctor was confident that he would pitch later this season.

Andrews performed the same surgery on left-hander Andy Pettitte in Aug. 2004. Pettitte has since produced four straight 200-inning seasons, two with the Astros, two with the Yankees.

Someone's going to sign Sheets in July with a good team option for 2010 and come out looking rather smart.
