Starting rotation takes another hit

If the Padres' rotation wasn't in another trouble, it just took another hit over the weekend.

Cha Seung Baek, slated to be the team's #3 starter, left the Padres' game on Saturday against the Dodgers with what the team is calling a "strained forearm." Baek will undergo more tests to make sure the injury isn't more severe.

Padres' trainer Todd Hutcheson, "All of the testing we did, it looked like a strain. I would say it's mild."

The Padres' right-hander isn't slated to start until April 8th at Petco Park when the team will take on those same Los Angeles Dodgers. They want to make sure Baek rests the arm until then and may throw a bullpen session just to make sure he's good to go prior to his first start of the 2009 season.
