Smoltz Headed to DL
John Smoltz may start the 2008 Major League Baseball Season on the DL. He has soreness in his shoulder and it may be best for the Braves and Smoltz if he starts off on the DL. They would set it up where he could be ready to start against the Mets on April 6th. He will try to throw later in the week to see if he can make his first scheduled start, but if not they will go ahead and place him on the DL to make room for another pitcher on the roster while he is out.
