The MRI shows his shoulder is NOT getting better and at this point I would be shocked if we see him pitch in Cincy at all this year. I think this means we see Chapman in the bullpen all season....:(

The article does not state that it is not getting better. You may want to re-read it.

It's not healing properly, he can't throw...how is that not getting better?

I fear you're right about Chapman, but if Bray gets healthy and Hoover does anything close to what he did in Louisville for the Reds, they might decide they have enough pen arms to move Chapman to the rotation.

I knew you would come back and say something ignorant. All you want to to do is argue. It does not say it is not getting better. And it also does not say it is not healing properly. It says neither of those two things.

It's states that the MRI shows that tear has not healed, how is that a good thing and all throwing must be stoped. How exactly is that a good thing?

From Fay..

Masset did not get news he wanted. MRI shoed strain in shoulder casule is not fully healed, Cant resume throwing...so how is that not bad news and a problem?

Even Masset commented he doesn't know what is going to happen from here...bank on it...surgery in his near future...

You change your story every time. First it is not healing. Then it is not healing properly. Now it is not healed and how is that a good thing. All you want to do is argue. I apologize to the board for getting sucked in.

For those who haven't read the article, including BRM, here a couple snippets.


The injury to his shoulder is about half-healed.
“It’s a small rent on my capsule,” Masset said. “A rent is a paper cut on my capsule. It’s small strain of the capsule. Say it was 80 percent (injured). It’s probably 40 percent now. We’re trying to get it to zero, where it’s fully strong.”

So it is healing. It is about half healed per Masset.


“He doesn’t have to have an operation,” Baker said. “It’s healing."

Go on change your story again. It's what you do.

It's not healing properly or it would be better at this point. Teams always make it sound better then it is and you trust our doctors on this team, how many pitchers have they stated one day..oh they will be fine only to see them DL'ed and then have surgery a few weeks later...

going from 80%(hurt) to 40%(hurt)=getting better. maybe its just taking longer than they thought.

This is a problem. A big problem. Chapman ends up in the pen the whole years while the Reds try to win and we never know if he can start and stretch himself out over a period of time.

Having Chapman in the pen is an answer to a problem. Eventually this year I think he will be a starter, but I'm not Dusty or Walt. Having him in the pen has been really good so far. I understand the frustration/wondering what he could do as a starter, based off him as a reliever. My opinion is the Reds are better served RIGHT NOW with Chappy in the pen. :beerme:

You are believing they are being truthful or even have a clue on how to medically treat the players. Given the track record of the Reds doctors and players health...Massett will have surgery at some point this season...bank on it.

Are you saying that Reds doctors don't know how to medically treat the players?

I personally have serious questions about the Reds medical staff, it seems like every injury is worse than it is initially diagnosed.

I'm starting to get the feeling that the planets must be aligned before Chapman gets a chance at starting for the Reds. Apparently we need to carry 3 LHP relievers at all times.

YEP...

you have bumped your bean on something hard....Reds have some of the best Docs in baseball....matter of fact, other teams continually send players to our docs for 2nd opinions....we not only have one of the best in Tim Kremchek but we have the best on site docs in that follow the team....So many other factors go into a guy getting hurt...its not always the docs fault, or the coaches....

I too used to think our guys were hurt a bunch and something must be wrong, but after doing some research I found that Reds are one of the few teams that are truly respected as far as Doctors,surgeons and sports therapists are concerned....
