    Reds are well-acquainted with life after Tommy John surgery

    This is a great read by SI's Joe Lemire on Tommy John surgery.

    Volquez's return to the majors wasn't smooth. After making eight starts with the Reds in July and August, averaging only 4 1/3 innings per outing and sporting a 6.10 ERA, the club sent him down to Triple A for two weeks at the end of August to work out some kinks and refocus his efforts. He had a 1.95 ERA in four starts upon his return, logging nearly seven innings per turn and averaging more than a strikeout per inning.

    "When he came back last year, I thought he was really focusing on the velocity aspect of the game, and his mechanics suffered because of it," Price said. "He got to the point where he came up [to the majors] and pitched, but we sent him back to make a couple of starts in Dayton. He came back with a better understanding of where we wanted him to go with his delivery."

    Here's hoping his 2010 finish is reflective of where he's heading this year.

    Great read! Thanks for posting it. I really found the part about how the younger the person is when they start pitching the less likely they are to get an injury later on. Interesting stuff.
