Rumorville: Justin Duchscherer

Buster Olney notes that Oakland, who quietly has put together one of the crappier records in all of baseball, may soon have another chip to trade: Justin Duchscherer (stats here).  Sure, some might think that missing the entire season thus far with an injury to a pitching elbow is a so-called "red flag."  However, when he's healthy, his numbers are good, such as his 2.54 ERA covering 22 starts last season.  He's about to begin his rehab assignment, and could be ready to pitch in the big leagues in a few weeks.  He's a free agent after this season, and would cost an aspiring team (who loses the Roy Halladay sweepstakes) about $1.3 million for the rest of 2009.

Olney mentions the Brewers because Doug Melvin had traded for Duchscherer (the more often you type his name, the easier it is to spell) in a past, pre-Brewers life. 

(My question is, would he be off the DL by next Friday, the trading deadline?  I'm pretty sure you can't trade injured players.)
