Luke Prokopec still has a bruise under the nail on his right middle finger, where a persistent blister helped land the rookie right-hander on the 15-day disabled list Aug. 9. Sitting out has made his mood as blue as the splotch on his finger. "I've been a [bear] to live with at home, pretty much," Prokopec said. "But you just come here [to the stadium], you get your work every day. Nothing much different but it's frustrating sitting on the bench doing nothing and you can't contribute."
