#1 Overall Pick, Bierbrodt, to the DL
Chicago, IL (7M7AP): Just four games into his young professional career, 7Mickey7 number one overall pick, Preston Bierbrodt, was put on the 60-day disabled list with a torn groin muscle, but is expected to be out for more.
"Welcome to the world of professional baseball," dejected Maulers owner Nick Carita commented. "I'd rather him be injured now and recover than to be in our starting lineup in the playoffs and go down with an injury."
Bierboldt was off to a great start in his professional career, with a 3-0 record in four appearances. He's held his opponents to a .219 batting average and posted a 3.64 ERA.
