    Strasburg to Most Likely need TJ surgery per ESPN....

    Just heard it on ESPN first take.

    They babied that guy and it still did not make a difference. Nothing really does. Some pitchers can throw tons of innings or pitches and be okay....others are just paper mache.

    I wonder where they are getting that. Nothing in the media here in DC. That would be headline making news too in this area.

    That would be devastating for the Nationals. They are on the hook for a whole boatload of cash and Strasburg is their number one ticket seller.

    The Nationals message board at mlb.com seems to be reporting the same thing

    Can't say I'm too surprised, but it is unfortunate

    He had an MRI and he has a significant tear in his ulnar collateral ligament. According to that link out 12 to 18 months.

    RT @BrentSGambill Nationals will be getting second opinion before moving forward with Tommy John surgery. 6 minutes ago via web

    Isn't Strasburg one of the guys with the "inverted W" or such?

    TJ surgery is not the end of the world. No reason he can't come back in 2013 and be good again.

    2013? I thought the recovery time was about 12 to 18 months. He should be ready to go in some capacity by the start of the 2012 season.

    First year back typically is not at 100 percent.

    And pitchers can come back from TJ surgery throwing harder than before.. that's kind of a scary thought

    Not to mention that since he's on the DL he'll be spending the next 2 years on the major league roster, getting major league service time while not pitching and putting him closer to his arbitration years. Of course if he doesn't come back dominant, then his 1st couple of seasons of arbitration won't be worth much, but it will be 2 seasons they won't get out of him in the time that the Nats control him.
