Satterwhite update

Just talked with Tigers head athletic trainer Kevin Rand about bullpen prospect Cody Satterwhite, who’s opening the season on the disabled list at Double-A Erie with a shoulder injury. Rand classified it as a posterior impingement in his shoulder, otherwise known as a rotator cuff injury.

Satterwhite met last Friday with Dr. James Andrews, who recommended a rehab program. He gave Satterwhite a cortisone injection in his shoulder and scheduled him to be re-examined in two weeks.

Satterwhite and Robbie Weinhardt are regarded as the two up-and-coming relief prospects in the upper levels of the Tigers system. Weinhardt will open the year at Triple-A Toledo after an impressive Spring Training. The hard-throwing Satterwhite, if healthy, will at least start the season with the SeaWolves, for whom he shared the team lead in saves last year.
