Rich Harden will not pitch for Team Canada in the upcoming World Baseball Classic. The Tribune reported Harden "might not be ready to start for the Cubs during March because of his on-and-off right shoulder."
His number one priority is the Chicago Cubs. He still says he feels good and should be ready by spring training even though the Tribune says otherwise.
I do not think this is that bad. A lot of pitchers pitch with small tears and discomfort but it does make a deal for Peavy more likely.
