    Volquez could be ready by All-Star break

    Just read on yahoo that volquez has started throwing from the mound and could/should be ready after the all star break. My question is isnt this rather soon ? Also typically what should expectations be after T.J. surgery ? I thought i read before that it's typically a full year removed from T.J. surgery before the pitcher is Back to "Normal" anybody have insite or general info regarding pitchers coming back from T.J. surgery.

    Cards' Cris Carpenter recovered very well from it. He's dominant. I see no reason why Edison can't do the same.

    Volquez had the surgery at the begining of August last year. I think it is possible to return right after the allstar break, but probably as a relief pitcher.

    I can't help but think back to Jose Rijo and think that if the Reds hadn't rushed him back after his injury, he would have had several more years of effective pitching left in him.

    I would much rather EV take the full season off, and maybe do some rehab stuff in Winterball.

    I agree there isn't much reason to rush him back. He is very important for the next few years of this franchise. If we are still in it in August, bring him back for a playoff push in late August or September and if not... let him rehab slowly and get ready for 2011

    This.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    I was going to say. After the All-Star break would put it about a year. Maybe a tad quick, but I think sometimes it depends on the individual as well.

    Yeah, he didn't "just" have TJ surjery, he had some other surgeries.

    I hope that they take their time with him. No need to rush him.

    Even if we are in the race, we've got Chapman, Leake and Wood covering the 5th spot and AAA call-ups available.

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009

    Re: Volquez could be ready by All-Star break

    If this is true, I think that this will be a huge impact. It seems as though that around the All Star Break, our Reds turn sour and act as if they have no idea how to play baseball. So an addition like Edison would be great and/or a trade of somesort for the missing piece to the puzzle. But this is just a thought.

    What is the actual scoop on his surgeries then? I had only heard of the Tommy John, but have seen a few posts on here about him having more than that done. Can you fill me in?

    Dunno if you guys read "baseball prospectus" or not, but they painted a pretty dim picture for his future. Did anyone catch that, and if so, what did you think of it?

    i gotta agree with this, theres no reason to bring him back this year. Let him have the full season to recover. We have enough talent in AAA that can cover with him being gone for the full season..if he were to come back, i dont think it should be till aug/sept as a relief pitcher.

    Re: Volquez could be ready by All-Star break

    Can anyone inform me as to what is going on? I keep hearing he had more than just Tommy John, but noone will answer what it was he had done. Also, there is apparently a Baseball Prospectus article about his dim future...I couldnt find it when I searched for it deeply on their website, anyone have a link or could summarize it? Thanks, I feel left out.
