Dana Eveland (elbow) is likely done for the season.

Eveland was given a cortisone injection in his left elbow in hopes that it would allow him to keep pitching, but an MRI Thursday showed that he still had inflammation. The good news is that he has no structural damage. "It was a relief to know there is no structural damage," Eveland said, "but it (stinks) I was having a good season, I wanted to finish strong."
