Saw that Kent Maeda had TJ and is estimated out 9-12 months. TJ recovery used to be 12-18 months. Has the technology improved that much or are there different grades of UCL tears?

Let's say Gates is back 10 months after his surgery on March 17, could he possibly pitch in 2022? It would be grand if he snags the 1B role so Kayfus can play RF, but having him in the bullpen would help and might allow for Palmquist to become the Friday night ace we desperately need.

Everyone is different but it’s now a 10-12 month injury. 10 months if no setbacks and coming back as a reliever. Closer to 12 if experience soreness and/or a starter.

These are generalities as ~5% never make it back all the way. Some have different injuries compensating for the TJ injury and blow out over that and don’t make it back. So if you attribute those cases to TJ, it’s closer to 10% who don’t make it back from the injury to compete again.

Was with my uncle this weekend whose a MLB scout. In charge of southeast for the organization he is a part of. Specifically Florida. Says Dimare and JD would be idiots not to put Palm in starting rotation. According to his write up he has on him, he’s a MLB starter.

Just wanted to pass this along. He’ll be visiting the team soon and will get some info from him on how they look.

Hopeful that Palmquist, Walters, Ziehl, Ligon get a fair shake although I get a feeling that the robots in charge will stick with Garland, Rosario, McFarlane, Dubberly as the starters.
