What’s funny is I already stated we’re going to disagree about this but you have to have the final word but its your site so I guess you have that privilege. I won’t make any further comment regarding Gregerson.May 17, 2018 at 5:56 pm #52820CariocaCardinalParticipantPaid - Monthly
Shelby Miller is one year removed from TJ surgery and is on more or less the same schedule as Reyes. One year out and he just threw his first EST outing.May 17, 2018 at 6:02 pm #52822
I did not see that Miller just threw, but that would make sense as his surgery was mid-May. Theoretically, they could bring him back sooner than the two-plus month ramp up for Reyes because they are already so deep into the season they could more easily keep him at 100 innings. Also, EST ends in two weeks, so after that, he would probably have to go over to the Arizona League. Of course, their plan for Miller could be different and every player’s body is different, too.
Still, whenever he is deemed ready, it would be nice to see Miller finally get back and realize his potential. He has had a bad run.
(P.S. I forgot to mention that Reyes started throwing last September and re-started with bullpen sessions in Florida in late January, at 11 months post-surgery, six weeks before I saw him in the first days of spring training games. I don’t know when Miller started up his throwing to compare.)May 18, 2018 at 7:34 am #52905
Update via Rick Hummel:
Veteran righthander Luke Gregerson, disabled with shoulder impingement and less severe elbow difficulties, also underwent testing on Thursday.
Mozeliak had no findings to offer but didn’t expect the news to come back “as completely season-ending.”May 18, 2018 at 2:12 pm #52958gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
Regarding Holland, here are Mo’s comments to Rick Hummel:
Mozeliak, analyzing the slow start of reliever Greg Holland said, “One thing that stands out to me is his strikeout rate and his walk rate and they’re too close.”
Holland, a free agent who signed the day the season opened, walked 13 and fanned eight in 11 2/3 innings before Thursday.
“Trying to play catch-up. . . is a lesson learned for all of us,” said Mozeliak. “It’s not that easy.
“It shows you the value of spring training.”July 6, 2018 at 3:26 pm #59383July 13, 2018 at 5:24 pm #60035
