    Barret Loux

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2010/0...medium=twitter

    'Backs let him go to FA after physical revealed tear in labrum.

    He was a RH SP from Texas A&M. I saw him pitch twice....was very impressed.

    Anyone think there is even a small chance we take a flier?

    Diamondbacks Set Loux Free

    Posted Aug. 17, 2010 11:10 am by John Manuel
    Filed under: Signings


    The statement reads:

    “We have reached an agreement regarding Barret Loux’s status that is mutually beneficial to the parties. Today Commissioner Selig has announced that Loux will become a free agent on September 1. As such, he will be free to sign with any Major League Club at that time. In addition, the Arizona Diamondbacks will receive a Supplemental Selection in the 2011 First-Year Player Draft.

    This seems like a weird thing to have happen.

    Re: Barret Loux

    Should the Reds try to sign Barret Loux when he becomes a free agent on September 1? The Reds could sign him to a minor league deal and put him on the minor league DL?

    Does anyone even know why he failed the physical?

    yes, somehow I skimmed over the first post without seeing the labrum tear. I tore my labrum around the same age as Loux. Had it scoped. Twenty years later my shoulder still hurts.

    My rule on pitchers: Stay away from ALL pitchers with labrum tears.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I'm guessing that Cardinal fans are pretty glad Jocketty didn't have that rule.

    I'm sensing major sarcasm so let me rephrase.

    Chris Carpenter had a torn labrum. He turned out very well.

    I admit though that Carpenter is the exception rather than the rule. Not many pitchers make it back after that injury.

    Re: Barret Loux

    Isn't the claim that he pitched like this all year without knowing?

    If so, is surgery really necessary?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Makes you wonder. I'm no doctor, but I'd think pitching with a torn labrum would probably catch up with one eventually.

    If the Diamondbacks sign Barret do they get to keep the draft pick?
