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.

    • You are welcome. You call it condescension, I call it factual truth.
    • I can't imagine the Angelos' are in much of a giving mood after losing the MASN court battle with MLB.  Unfortunately the little guys will pay the price.
    • Plus he gets a chance to stick it to the Steelers at least twice a year.
    • We’re 2-4 in mine. Do you know how we can get Mancini back in the sim? Will he be back at some point this season or can we make it happen? I couldn’t find him in the game but I’m still learning it and may have missed an injured list or something. 
    • More testing of the treatments will be a benefit in the long run - whether it be the combination of Chloroquine and Z-pack or something else.  Get the treatment out there and it will reduce quarantine times and make the virus manageable.  Then work on the vaccine that could actually come in the fall.  It is being fast-tracked more so than in the past. https://katu.com/news/coronavirus/fast-track-coronavirus-vaccination-request-to-go-to-fda-for-approval
    • This is a tough one. Ever since we drafted Hollywood I've thought AB signing with us could be a possibility. AB has not been the same since he took the vicious hit in the Bengals game.  Why ? Concussion? I can't remember what the diagnosis was after that game.  It almost seems like a storybook ending for AB if he goes to the castle and meets with the Ravens top brass and I mean top brass from Bisciotti to Cass to Harbaugh to DeCosta to Ozzie and Lamar. Bisciotti has said he would like to copy or be like the Steelers and certainly would be if they signed AB.  Would other vets like Thomas and Campbell be able to keep him straight?  In some ways I can see us being the perfect fit for him. We have a great clubhouse and somehow Harbaugh is able to click with players.  He praises them and makes them feel important. AB definitely needs stroking and praise due to his huge ego. Big Ben and Tomlin didn't stroke him and didn't click. Gruden and him didn't click but that was no surprise and the Pats clubhouse was probably like walking on eggshells with Bill B in charge. If the top guys talk to him and are comfortable I am comfortable.  I can see in a way Lamar and him clicking with Hollywood around. He knows what it's like playing at M & T and probably is smart enough to know he could make our solid offense even better. Super Bowl ?
