CJ Wilson update: "elbow impingement secondary to arthritis"


Recommended Posts

Sounds like CJ Wilson is expecting to have surgery and be out for the season.

No bueno. I know he blew it the other night, and some here hate the guy, but hes still a decent enough SP. The alternative is weaver whos looking worse by the day (and i love him) and tropeano, who as a rookie will probably be CJ, as in dominant a start or two, shelled the next.

Is it wrong that all I'm wondering about is how this affects his trade value this offseason? He's had surgery for bone spurs before and he said once he gets the surgery he'll be good to go for next season. Thing is, will a team still trade for him this offseason while he's coming off surgery/rehabbing?

 

Of course, there's also the glass half full side of this. CJ had bone spurs during his 1st season in Anaheim....got the surgery in the offseason, then proceeded to have his best year here in 2013

Arthritis is progressive, you manage it and then eventually you have to replace the joint someway.  Sounds like the impingement can be fixed with surgery, but out for the rest of this season.  Next year a toss up, then probably finished.

Same surgery he had in 08 and 12, he did fine the two years following it. Hopefully he can rebound again. Seems doubtful though, the older you get the worse recovery is.

Credit to Fletch for that info.

Oh yeah, it takes away almost any trade value he has, unless he can come back strong in April and perform for a couple months.

 

Regardless, it doesn't effect the long-term too much and in a way helps speed things along as it gives opportunity to young pitchers. In a couple years this will be a moot point as the rotation will be taken from the following pitchers:

 

Richards

Heaney

Newcomb

Skaggs

Santiago

Shoemaker

Tropeano

 

One or two might be traded, but I like the idea of keeping all seven for depth - five in the rotation, two in the pen.

Plus Ellis, too.
