Lowry to sit: Pitcher Noah Lowry will be "shut down" for the next three or four weeks, as the Giants trainers evaluate his left forearm, which was surgically repaired March 8.
Lowry is experiencing a "pins and needles" sensation in the affected area, according to team trainer Dave Groeschner. Lowry had a nerve exam Tuesday and will get another opinion later this week. But he will not be pitching anytime soon.
"It could be three weeks, it could be longer," Groeschner said. "We need to shut him down until this thing is right. Otherwise, we are just spinning our wheels."

This is quite scary to me. The longer this drags on, the less chance we see Noah ever pitching in the bigs again. These lingering mystery injuries seem to never quite heal, and now I'm wondering if the Giants' are going to have to shop for a fifth starter untl Correria heals up, and with an obliquie strain that could be a long, long time.
