Well, I guess we'll see how that turns out. Pitchers are allowed a "dead arm" grace period. I think it comes during spring training for some, and I think others suffer it in the dog days of August. Some seem to revisit it more than once a season. But, swinging a baseball bat 30-50 times a day 250 days a year can take a toll as well, even on a young man not under the influence of steroids. Who knows if the Reds are concerned about such things...
