    Jerry Gil has Tommy John surgery

    Not that he was being counted on for a lot this year anyway, but he had Tommy John surgery today on his right elbow and will be out 6 months per team press notes. Looks like 2008 will be the earliest we see anything out of him.

    Ol' Gil just can't catch a break.

    What are they doing to these guys in ST that makes them have TJ surgery?

    That's a more significant surgery for him than for Denorfia. One of Jerry Gil's major league skills is his rocket throwing arm. If his arm becomes just average then there goes one of the ways he can contribute to a major league team.

    oh..... that is too bad. Bad enough to lose deno, but this one too. These guys weren't going to be all stars, but they were quality players. I was pretty sure that Gil was being groomed for the Ryan Freel super-sub role. Now, he loses the entire year. Ouch.

    So much for converting him to a pitcher . . .
