Harvey has Setback - Elbow Tightness, MRI next

Recommended Posts

It happens to every other good pitcher...

The miracle exception these days is a team having a crop of young pitching with no Tommy John's. It just doesn't happen anymore.

Wait, you mean the "elbow tightness" that shut him down last year in July didn't magically fix itself? Say that a'int so? Never seen a young pitcher shut down with elbow or shoulder problems for the rest of the season in July not eventually go under the knife. Just delaying the inevitable unfortunately.

I'd really appreciate it if our top pitching prospects would stop getting injured all the damn time.

Maybe we should have them immediately undergo TJ surgery when we sign them. That way we won't have to worry about them when they start throwing again a year later. :D

And i am curious again about the direct correlation of velocity spikes and ucl tears. It almost seems like sometimes while that ucl is fraying the velocity goes up somehow and then ucl rips.

At some point the front office needs to start hedging their bets with these arms. It just keeps happening. Now Im starting to realize why some people say their is no such thing as a pitching prospect. Hope it's not that serious.

Harvey was a solid bet. Father played, mechanics solid, wasn't abused.

Pitching is just rough.

:agree:

We also have social media and 100x more reporters, so now, we hear so much more information about the players

This lends towards keeping as many pitching prospects.

Hader, ERod, and Arrieta still have elbows more or less in one piece. Bundy, Harvey, and Klein do not.

    • The Yankees started off the inning with two singles, but Cobb got Miguel Andujar to pop up to short stop then got DJ LaMahieu to ground into a 6-4-3 double play. Chris Davis reached on error by second baseman LaMahieu, but Mason Williams grounded into a 4-6-3 double play and Iglesius made the final out of the inning.

    • Orioles News Catcher Austin Wynns passed through waivers today and was assigned to Norfolk where he will share playing time with Bryan Holaday.
    • Two weird things about Union Park: - Looking out from home plate the field faces due south.  Most modern parks face north or northeast.  OPACY and Memorial face(ed) NE. In the 1890s all games were day games, so the afternoon sun would be in the batters' eyes. - The main grandstand wasn't centered around home plate.  You can see this in the photograph, but home plate was only 20-30 feet from the right edge of the stands (looking at the fire insurance map above).  This is because of the apartments or rowhouses at the NE corner of the lot which I assume predated the park.  If you lived at 309 E 25th (hard to read the numbers, looks kind of like 309), you'd be closer to home plate than the CFer.
