Luke Prokopec becomes a free agent
Reds Press Release

RHP Luke Prokopec today became a free agent after rejecting an outright assignment to Class AAA Louisville.
Prokopec, selected off the Los Angeles roster in the December Rule 5 Draft, was offered back to the Dodgers for half of the Rule 5 selection fee ($25,000). The Dodgers rejected the offer.

Prokopec spent the season on the Reds' 60-day disabled list. He began the season on the DL while recovering from 9/18/02 arthroscopic surgery to repair the torn labrum in his right shoulder (Dr. Anthony Miniachi). On 7/8 he had arthroscopic reconstructive revision surgery on that shoulder to repair the damaged anterior, posterior and superior labrum (Dr. Timothy Kremchek). Prokopec isn't expected to pitch again until July 2004.

I realize most people most like know this one.
We either make ourselves happy or miserable.

The amount of work is the same.

He's a deep sleeper for me. He came up the same year as Gagne did. Luke has suffered some injuries, but he will either break out soon or not be a viable option. I'll be keeping my eyes on him.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
