Yhency Brazoban is down...again. From Diamond Leung:

Yhency Brazoban was shut down again with shoulder inflammation after being scheduled to throw today. Apparently, the cortisone shot he received didn't help.

Here's what Tony Jackson has to say:

The cortisone shot either didn't take or didn't hit the right spot. He had hoped to be pitching again within a week, but that now seems unlikely. We may NEVER see this guy in the majors again, the way things are going. And to think, there was a time when he was a decent major-league closer.

Brazoban only appeared in two games for the Dodgers in 2008. Although he turns 29 this year, Brazoban's burgeoning injury history is putting him into Darren Dreifort territory. But at only a fraction of the price!
