What can we expect from Rolen?

Postby gws226 » Tue Jun 07, 2005 12:09 am

The news is reporting that he is two or three weeks away from returning. Im thinking of making a move to grab him off someone's DL in the comming days.

What can we expect the rest of the way from him?

Scott Rolen, who underwent shoulder surgery last month, took batting practice for the first time on Monday.
Rolen could return to the Cardinals' lineup in two to three weeks.

I am a huge Cards fan, but am also very objective. Like most, I feel that Rolen had a career year last year. I think that a 100% healthy Rolen would not have put up the numbers from last year. Add in the rust from the lost time and I think you can expect about 2 weeks of average performance followed by a return to 2003 numbers. That being said, Rolen is still a top 5 third baseman and will be a solid option. Not to steal your thread or anything, but what starting pitcher could you get for him at this point. I have him and would like to move him because Prior got hurt.

When projecting a player's numbers, especially a veteran guy's stats, look at what he's done over the career and use that. If Rolen is back by the AS break, look between a .280-.300 AVG with 15-20 HRs the rest of the way.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

Couldn't have said it much better myself. ;-D No one in their right mind should have been expecting a repeat of '04 even if he was healthy all year. When he finally does get back he should put up top 5 or so 3B production from that point on out would be my guess.

Yes, but the question is.... he is really going to come back 100% or is this one of these 2 month return to form injuries... ala berkman?

To answer your question, I was gonna offer B.Webb.

No. He will not come back 100%. As I said, I think for about 2 weeks he will be average at best. However, Berkman had to refrain from any baseball activities for a much longer time than Rolen did. Rolen is already taking BP and I think his adjustment period will reflect that.
