    Stephenson to the DL

    Jesus Adame was activated from the DL today and Robert Stephenson took his place. Looks like no All-Star Game for Stephenson.


    Oh yeah, he went on to the DL because of a strained left hamstring.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    I've never been more afraid to click anything in my life. It wouldn't have hurt to throw a hamstring in the title Dave!

    Weird. Saw him yesterday and he didn't look like he was having any trouble walking. Maybe they are promoting him and didn't want him in the AS game?

    Re: Stephenson to the DL

    I'm guessing this is a way to limit the innings a bit. He's already pitched more innings than last year (I know he probably had some innings in extended spring that aren't counted). At 66.2 now, my guess is they'd lke him to finish with something in the 130 to 140 range and this skips a couple starts and any All Star innings. He has had a little over 100 IP in Dayton now split over two seasons. I wonder if a promotion is due.

    Doubtful.

    I heard about the injury a day before anything was announced, so it seems that they wanted to wait and see how it was the next day before making a move.

    So you doubt this is a phanton injury? Am I correct in assuming this kind of injury will not effect Stephenson long-term?

    Stephenson is most definitely hurt. Has nothing to do with anything other than the fact that he is hurt.

    redsof72, is there concern that this will be a lingering problem and will significantly hinder Stephenson's development?

    I just hope they give him extra time to heal the injury and get the leg strengthened. Leg injuries can throw off a pitcher's delivery and lead to an arm injury if mishandled.

    Why would it? It is a hamstring, not something in his arm.

    That's what I figured. I just figured I would ask redsof72 in case he wanted to share.

    Torn hamstring. They will let it heal completely, and then with a pitcher, he goes on a throwing program. No timetable. A month would not be a surprise. Terrible luck. He was dealing.

    It had been interesting for the last couple of starts to hear scouts debate what would happen if he had gone straight to the bigs, which was not going to happen, but still prompted hypotheticals.

    His last start, he did not throw a fastball under 96, topped out at 100, and one scout told me he put his slider down as a 70 (that's 70 on the scout's rating scale, not 70 mph). Just for reference, a 70 tool is considered to be a tool typical of somewhere between a franchise player and a perennial all-star. And that's his second best pitch.

    A different scout told me the only player in baseball he would trade Stephenson for right now was Trout. You can take that for what it's worth...just a guy talking.

    How common is that for a pitcher to tear their hamstring while pitching? I don't think that I have ever heard of that before.
