This could be ugly..Damn, we got robbed by Seattle..
Not only that this is the same team that made the NYY believe that they had a deal for C. Lee and changed their mind and sent hin to Texas. The Yankees should avoid doing business with the Mariners. My consolation is to see those cheaters as losers for a long time.
Pineda will never throw over 90 ever again.....Some of you are just trying to be too optimistic and are in denial......
Labrum issues are bad....This is terrible news and this is very unfortunate for the Yanks...
if he does come back I just see him as a reliever or a 5th starter at best....Forget the #2 slot!
Cole Hamels anyone?
I'm not a baseball player, I'm a swimmer. And I had the EXACT SAME surgery my sophomore year of high school, only mine was a dislocation and was much more severe than the injury Pineda has (which, by all accounts, is not bad as far as labrums go).
Anyways, I had the surgery in December. By July, I was already putting up best times and I wasn't even working hard. I went to therapy three times per week and NEVER did my home exercises.
Pineda has a world class, full-time athletic training staff, a renowned surgeon, etc. If anyone can make a comeback, it'll be him.
Brandon Webb had a more severe version of this, and when he was rehabbing, he messed up his rotator cuff. If anything, this has Chris Carpenter or Jake Peavy 2.0 written all over it.
