Hunter Harvey

6 posts in this topic

I just saw something on Hunter Harvey being shut down for the rest of the season because of soreness in his throwing elbow.

Yes, the MRI results reportedly showed no ligament damage, and no surgery appears to be required, but as we stated when Orioles catcher Matt Wieters first went down with a sore elbow, it is very rare for elbow soreness to just go away without eventually having Tommy John surgery

 

 

i didn't see anything on the board about this, but I haven't checked much in the last week and a half due to a death in the family.

 

Anybody know anything more on this?

I read about it when he was shut down, but it sounded like they weren't really sure how severe the problem is. honestly though, these "discomforts" seem to always end in surgery.

Indeed. Makes one wonder if they shouldn't just put in a new tendon right now, as soon as the original begins to fail. The replacements seem to be stronger, so why not just get it over with?

My first thought when seeing 'elbow soreness' reported in the article was... 'just great, another TJ surgery'.
