Will Felix Hernandez's elbow problem re-set the starting pitching market?

It will be interesting to see how the snag that has put off Felix Hernandez's contract extension effects the market for starting pitchers. Hernandez was well on his way Friday to signing what was reported to be the most lucrative contract for a starting pitcher in baseball history when the party unceremoniously came to an end without explanation. Since then word has leaked out that Hernandez didn't pass his physical because of a reported problem with his elbow.
