    Re: Tommy John

    Sad day for the sport of baseball:

    Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that the Marlins anticipate Jose Fernandez needing season-ending elbow surgery.
    It had been trending that direction, but this is the first we've heard of a Marlins source conceding that Tommy John surgery is a likely outcome. Fernandez has already undergone a pair of MRIs and a decision about his status should be made soon. The stud young right-hander has put up a 2.44 ERA and 70/13 K/BB ratio in 51 2/3 innings this season.

    If you haven't seen this young guy pitch - he's a beast.

    We have 2 camps for the reasons behind all these TJS:

    1: We are babying these guys and they need to pitch more. Mr. Ryan believe these guys need to pitch more because back in the 80's guys threw 100+ pitches every game and never had this many TJS.

    2: We need to do a better job monitoring pitch count at the little league, middle, high school, and ncaa.

    I could make a fight for both camps but I strongly believe overall baseball is 20 years behind in the strength and conditioning department and regeneration. I have similar thoughts with all of the Achilles injuries in football, I try to put a focus on getting therapy on the calves and reg mobility work on the surrounding areas. When football players are asked to complete those huge workloads I'm actually surprise the Achilles injuries numbers aren't higher. The New England patriots had several tears last year and two of the players calves that I touched felt like cylinder bricks.......

    I love working with the injured or athletes that are tossed in the dumpster. I would love to make Vince Young my next comeback project!!!!

    Martin Perez was diagnosed with a partial tear of the UCL in his left elbow.
    Torn elbow ligaments and Tommy John surgery go hand in hand, and it's already been identified as an option for the 23-year-old. A non-surgical option also exists, and Perez will consult with the Rangers on the next move.

    Another young talent....

    The marlins trainers didn't decide to do a mri until they saw Jose Fernandez fast ball go from 97 to 88-90mph.... I think the kid was pitching injured the past few weeks because he was getting hammered.....

    What's Young's problem?

    I thought his issue was between the ears?

    He's carrying too much weight, lacking general fitness, and need major speed/power work. Very similar to what Dan Pfaff talks about in his dvd's, coaches think certain guys are done but once they are on a decent program they bounce back and have career years.

    This Texas team always have crazy injuries and tons of lower body injuries.

    Matt Harrison (back) has a displacement of a vertebra in his back and could be faced with spinal fusion surgery.
    Harrison also has significant nerve irritation in the back. As an alternative to surgery, Harrison could also opt to live with the condition for the rest of his playing career, a more painful option but one that wouldn't put his career in jeopardy. Surgery would almost certainly threaten to end his pitching career.

    Wow!!!!
