I meant to mention this before: Ben Sheets will make his first rehab start tonight for the Huntsville Stars, visiting the Mississippi Braves. He'll be limited to 50 pitches. I was surprised to learn that you can listen online! Very cool. I probably won't be able to, but if anyone does, please chime in and let us know what the announcers have to say about Big Ben at this stage.

Update [2006-4-7 0:16:20 by Jeff]: Rotoworld has got the scoop:
Ben Sheets (shoulder) struck out five while allowing two runs -- one earned -- in 2 2/3 innings for Double-A Huntsville on Thursday night. Sheets threw 37 of 49 pitches for strikes, and his fastball was clocked at 93-96 mph. He's expected to make one more start in the minors before coming back on April 16.
