MRI Shows Medlen Has Ligament Damage - RealGM Wiretap
Kris Medlen underwent an MRI on Monday that revealed an "injury to the ligament" in his pitching elbow Yaya Toure Manchester City Jersey , according to Frank Wren.
Medlen will seek a second opinion.
"His MRI showed injury to the ligament, but we don't yet know the extent," Wren said. "A diagnosis would be premature at this point. He will undergo further tests until we seek a second opinion. An MRI can sometimes be inconclusive when a player has had a previous Tommy John surgery."
Medlen was injured during Sunday's game against the New York Mets, grabbing his elbow after throwing the first pitch.
The 28-year-old, who had Tommy John surgery in 2010 and missed most of the 2011 season, was 15-12 with a 3.11 ERA last year. He is slated to be Atlanta's Opening Day starter.

Freight - An Introduction To The Basic Principles The world of freight and shipping is an exciting and very broad field of activity. Whether you are thinking of becoming a shipper, a broker, or planning on shipping something yourself, there is a lot to learn.
Freight is a word utilised to classify the transferral of items and is commonly a commercial activity. Items are normally coordinated into various shipment categories before they are channelled.
Things to consider are:
The type of item being sent Wilfried Bony Manchester City Jersey , i.e. a kettle would usually be put into the family 'household goods'.
- How large the object is, both in terms of item sizing and quantity.
- The length of time for the journey.
- Shipments are ordinarily noted as household goods, express, parcel, and freight items.
Fine art, furniture items Vincent Kompany Manchester City Jersey , and such things will normally be reffered to as household goods.
The majority of personal and small business items, including envelopes are classed as "overnight express" or "express letter items". Usually weighing less than a few pounds they almost always get delivered in the carriers packaging. The shipper determines the level of shipping at the appropriate time.
Express goods nearly always go some portion of the way by air. An envelope may go coast to coast overnight or it may take many days, depending on the service alternatives and prices chosen.
Parcel or ground dispatches is the name given to bigger items such as small boxes. Weighing less than 50Kg, and with no single item over 35Kg. Boxing is the normal choice for these shipments, sometimes the shipper does this and at other times the carrier provides the boxes.
Service levels are again varying; but just about all ground consignments will move around 500-700 miles per day, going seashore to coast in around four days depending on origin. Parcel payloads do not usually move by air Sergio Aguero Manchester City Jersey , and ordinarily move thru road and rail. Parcels constitute the absolute majority of business-to-consumer (B2C) loads.
Aside from Household goods and Parcels, the next catagories are described as "freight".
1. This is called LTL or Less-than-truckload:
The requirements for packaging and size are very similar for air freight and for LTL cargo. Generally the Less-than-truckload LTL carriers use a 28 foot container. Air freight shipments typically need to move at much faster speeds than 500 miles per day. Air shipments may be booked directly with the carriers or through brokers or online marketplace services. Air shipments move faster than standard LTL.
2. The next catagory is (TL) Truckload:
For larger loads of 7,500Kg and more, it makes more sense to dedicate one full truck rather than to share as with LTL loads. Truckloads (TL), are catagorised in the US as being above that weight of 15,000 pounds.
A full truck is limited to the amount of weight that a unit can legally carry by the difference between 80 Samir Nasri Manchester City Jersey ,000 pounds and the weight of the tractor trailer. Increasing shipment size has proven to be a significant opportunity for many companies - particularly large consumer product companies.
Schemes for increasing load size include precise calculation of the load within the equipment specifications. This is predominantly done by taking demand from, for example, a Distribution Resource Planning system or a Vendor Managed Inventory system. When sending freight, it is highly significant to realize the facts about pricing, claims, and insurance.
How freight pricing works:
Truckload (TL) carriers usually charge a rate per mile. The rate varies depending on the distance Raheem Sterling Manchester City Jersey , geographic location of the delivery, items being shipped, equipment type required, and service times required. TL shipments usually receive a variety of surcharges very similar to those described for LTL shipments above. In the TL market, there are thousands more small carriers than in the LTL market; so the use of transportation intermediaries or brokers is extremely common.
More dense items such as steel and machinery have low classifications such as Class 50 thru 85. Fragile or bulky items fall into freight classes 125 to 500, and pay higher shipment costs.
Another cost-saving method is facilitating pickups or deliveries at the carriers terminals. By doing this Pablo Zabaleta Manchester City Jersey , shippers avoid any accessorial fees that might normally be charged for liftgate, residential pickupdelivery, inside pickupdelivery or not.
