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.
