Time heals all wounds for former Brewer Sheets

MILWAUKEE -- If baseball, or life for that matter, were fair, Ben Sheets would have been rewarded with at least one postseason start for the Milwaukee Brewers. From the minute a 22-year-old Sheets was introduced with an Olympic gold medal around his neck during the final game at Milwaukee County Stadium in 2000, the right-hander became a symbol of hope for a struggling franchise...

Braves Injury News: Ben Sheets to Retire After Today's Start

Ben Sheets was the inspirational comeback story of the year. Or at least it seemed that way. He was phenomenal in his first five starts since the Atlanta Braves coaxed him out of retirement. Then his shoulder started wearing down. He gave up 15 runs in his last three starts before being sent to the DL. It was supposed to be a stint that would just allow him to get some rest...

BP Unfiltered: Ben Sheets' Dead Body by Ben Lindbergh

Every pitcher goes through the occasional "dead arm" period, most often early in the season. But when you've spent 345 career days (and two entire seasons) on the disabled list, the way Ben Sheets has, you need a stronger way to describe it: After Sheets gave up five runs in six innings Sunday night against the Mets, broadcasters suggested he might be experiencing...

Braves' gamble on Sheets paying off

On Thursday, the MLB Network asked me to prepare a segment on the best "under-the-radar" acquisitions this season. I immediately thought of Ben Sheets, and sent an email to Braves general manager Frank Wren asking him for some background.

Sheets brings excellent arm, leadership to Braves
