Mark Kotsay is going to have surgery to fix a herniated disk in his back, and will miss 8-12 weeks.
So, let’s take a look at how the A’s red lights are doing so far:
Mark Kotsay: back surgery
Bobby Kielty: knee surgery
Bobby Crosby: still recovering from his broken back
Justin Duchscherer: flu, elbow tendonitis
Mark Ellis: OK so far, but I hear Sylar is looking for him
Yup, them’s our A’s for you. We love ’em!
