Nomo has inflamed rotator cuff

Postby jdh » Wed Sep 03, 2003 11:50 pm

Hideo Nomo - S - Los Angeles Dodgers Sep 3

An MRI revealed inflammation in Hideo Nomo's rotator cuff, but he expects to start Tuesday.
Nomo isn't feeling any pain, but he hasn't been sharp his last couple of outings. Still, the Dodgers can't afford to rest him. You'll need to have a very good alternative to consider benching Nomo.

His next start is at Coors, so you should probably bench him for that regardless of possible injury problems.

True. Most likely I'll bench him, sit back, have a few silver bullets, and see how it turns out. :-D Lol. :-)

great, just great ... there goes the post season :-t

What I don't understand is how he can be injured .
Here is the "pitch counts" for his last 12 games ..

74
98
100
99
97
93
32
113
107
85
101
115

And during that time he is 6-4, so he has been babied right?
Maybe it has something to do with the way he throws? I don't know .. :-)

Well, it could not even be a serious injury. It could just be that he is on pace to throw way more innings than he ever has in his career.

TSN is now reporting that they have pushed Nomo's start back to Tuesday. That's not necessarily a bad thing for fantasy owners, because he now starts in Arizona instead of in Colorado.

Well pitch counts are generally thought to be more important for young pitchers like Prior, or pitchers coming off serious injuries (Wood, Brown, Morris, etc.). For guys like Mussina who have proven extremely durable, I don't think it's as much of a concern. Nomo is 34 and has been very durable in his career, so this might not be a big deal.
