Drabek shut down for season
Relax. He's not hurt - it's just a precautionary measure since he's throw upwards of 170 innings a year after having Tommy John surgery. Drabek has been placed on the temporary inactive list.
A hot name at the trade deadline, Drabek was the one guy the Phils were vocal about not wanting to trade. Drabek, the team's top pick in the 2006 draft, was 12-3 with a 3.19 ERA in 25 games between Class A Clearwater and Double-A Reading.
Drabek could compete for a major league job in 2010.
