What the fuck happend to Michael Barrett?

Seriously, what the fuck happened to the one-time catching prodigy of the Expo's? He injured his shoulder when he fell on a warmup bat-weight in the on deck circle while chasing down a David Purcey wild pitch. That was on April 17. Since then, Barratt has been perpetually activated on the 15-day DL (muscle tear in his right shoulder), and the Jays have been doing a great job keeping things quiet on a possible return date.

Barrett—who signed with the Jays in the offseason to help fill the massive void left when Greg Zahn was released—would have probably started 40-50 games this year, giving aging battleship Rod Barajas some much needed rest. Although, Barajas has shown that he can hold down the fort at the backstop position for at least the time being while the Jays wait for their young catching prospect, J.P Arencibia, to develop in Las Vegas.

A video of the injury can be found on this page.
