Hopefully everything works out for him.
I think his elbow will be just fine. Josh Johnson is just a great example of how pitchers come back even better after TJ surgery. Now.. how is shoulder holds up for the long haul may be another story.
I know some people love to see a hyped kid fail but I really do hope Strasburg is able to come back strong. He is good for the game of baseball.
Yeah, but this was after JJ pitched 40 MLB games, not 8. JJ also has quite a bit of size on Stras, which is why he's so durable, the dude is a beat.
Not that I'm saying he won't come back from this, because I agree and think he will, but this is just a terrible way to start off your professional career. I definitely feel bad for the kid.
