Not really a surprise. Likely a wasted pick for the Rangers.

Maybe this will quite those who were clamoring for him.

I've had about five teammates have a labrum surgery done in the past two years....only one of them has seen a good enough recovery to play in the field yet, let alone pitch.

Now we know why the Reds did not grab Scheppers instead of Boxburger.

Eek. Okay...I was wrong. I'm glad the Reds didn't draft him now. That injury sounds bad.

Wow, I wonder if some posters here are ready to eat some crow. For all of the bashing some posters did of how frugal and cheap the Reds were with this draft, I hope they can stand up and admit when they were wrong.

Labrum surgery. Ouch. I hope he bounces back but the odds are against it. Good thing the Reds passed on him.

It's only a matter of time before Crow needs surgery, too. In a couple years, I think we're going to be really happy the Reds didn't draft those guys.

Well, Schepper's injury will not determine whether Boxberger was the right pick or not; Boxberger's performance or lack thereof will determine that. There were other players besides Schepper's that had more perceived upside than Boxberger. We will see; what else can we do really?

I will eat crow for accusing the Reds of cheaping out on Scheppers, but like Bum said, the results of the draft will obviously remain to be seen...

ok ok i wanted scheppers, but wasn't he supposed to be throwing high 90's in his last start? Can you do that with a 50% tear in your rotator?

Apparently you can. The Rangers knew of the injury when they drafted him, and they still felt it was worth the risk.

Not really news other than it being in a news story.

I had an 85% tear, and ten years later, I have about 90% of my range of motion.

Feel terrible for the kid. Most of us never get handed a winning lottery ticket in life. To be handed one . . . and then to see it taken away . . . that's tough.

For the Rangers, could be a nice value play - a small bonus plus rehab costs for a potential TOR arm.

Still, who'd have thought that the "cheap" move was taking Scheppers, not skipping him?

Since when does a guy who has had labrum surgery qualify as a potential TOR arm?

Gil Meche? Joe Saunders?

It's obviously a huge risk for the club - the biggest injury risk out there, probably. But if the Rangers knew about the tear, than they either were punting the pick (possible) or rolling the dice on a surgical solution.

Very glad to be wrong in this situation. Score one for Buckley. The more I read about Boxburger, he was probably a solid pick. Second-best pitcher in the Pac 10 behind Mike Leake.

Ask Chris Gruler and Thomas Pauley about labrum surgery.

Another example of why the draft and the decisions made cannot be evaluated until we know all the information. There was pretty sound reasoning by the 30 teams as to why this guy wasn't drafted early.

How is that cheaping out? Labrum surgery is 10x worse than TJ surgery. If this is true then passing on him with his demands was the smart move.

You will eat "Crow" ... well played.

last year's offer is probably sounding a lot better to him now.

That's my point.

I argued that they might be cheaping out before it was known that he required labrum surgery.
