    Milton to have Tommy John Surgery

    It's official: Tommy John for Milton

    From the Reds:


    On Friday, Eric Milton will have season-ending "Tommy John" surgery to repair the torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow.

    Bill Bray had an MRI today that revealved inflammation in his left shoulder. He has been recalled from his rehabilitation assignment.

    Sad news, and I never wish injury upon anybody. It's unfortunate that this, however, will end the Milton era in Cincinnati. Best of luck, Eric.

    I wonder how long Milton has been hurt maybe that is why we never saw the guy we paid all that money for.

    So do the Reds have to pay his whole years salary even though he was hurt form most of the year?

    Good fortune to Eric Milton. His physical problems dince his arrival have been well-documented, and although his performance wasn't worth the salary, he pitched through pain and always took the ball. A classy guy, he never moaned in the media about the treatment he received from fans.

    Sadly, with his recurrent elbow problems and degenerative knee, it would appear we have seen the last of Eric Milton in the big leagues. I wish him the best.

    Never want to see an injury, and I'll always respect Milton for being a stand-up guy who gave it his best. Too bad that John Allen forced him and his contract (along with the Ramon Ortiz trade) on Dan O'Brien when season ticket renewals were declining in the winter of 2004/2005.

    as stated milton took the ball and never complained. He stood and took all the of the junk thrown at him by us, sports radio and many more. I respect him for going out there everyday. Yes it was a bad contract but Dano in his wildest dreams prolly couldn't imagine it would go like this.

    Re: Milton to have Tommy John Surgery

    I wonder if the Reds have any injury insurance on Milton and his big contract?

    Re: Milton to have Tommy John Surgery

    From what I understand there is about a 90% chance of a full recovery after TJ Surgery. It seems to be that an eight month or ten month recovery is necessary to get completely back to 100%. Milton seems to me to know that he owes the Reds. Would you sign him to a Minor-League contract with an invite to ST next spring? Let him work with the team get him extended ST and see if he can't make this comeback? Questions that I would like to ask because I think there is a legitament argument to them, especially if he can rehab that knee, maybe we can squeeze one last career year out of him. Thoughts?
    this was posted in the ORG and i thought it deserved a discussion in the sun deck as well...

    I love the idea of being able to sign him to a 2 year minor league deal. The first being spent entirely on rehab assignments and what not. While we maintain the hope that the 2nd year milton just might fall back into twins like form. On a regular basis pitchers after the surgery pick up a mph or 2 on their respective fastball. With a work up in the count pitcher like milton this could be very benficial and he will have almost an entire year to rest the knee

    He's left handed. If he recovers from surgery, someone will give him a 1 year major league deal. 1-2 million.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    what about some sort of incentive laden deal that depended on # of starts and IP?
