Maybe he goes on the DL, maybe he is done for the year, but there is no way his career is over.
If something as basic as 'swinging a bat' is going to cause issues, then that to me is HUGE. If his body can't handle that motion then how can it handle the unnatural aspect pitching puts on a shoulder/arm area.
