Brackman sidelined with a groin injury

Per Marc Carig of the Star-Ledger, Andrew Brackman, one of the famed Killer B's, has been shut down with tightness in his groin. He won't throw again until Tuesday.

"It's not going to hurt me," Brackman told the Ledger, "but it couldn't be a worse time."

Between Tampa and Trenton last year, Brackman finished 10-11 with a 3.90 ERA and struck out 126 men in 140 2/3 innings. He walked just 39, less than half of his total from 2009.

Brackman also was the winner in the Thunder's final victory of the season, a 3-2 victory over Altoona in Game 1 of the Eastern League Championship Series. He relieved Andy Pettitte that day, and tossed five innings of one-hit ball with four strikeouts.
