Kinney done for the year due to TJ surgery

Postby LukeW9027 » Thu Mar 08, 2007 8:37 pm


Cardinals reliever Josh Kinney will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the entire season.

We thought there was a good chance Kinney would disappoint, but the Cardinals were really counting on him to be a big part of their bullpen with both Adam Wainwright and Braden Looper in the rotation. The soon-to-be 28-year-old right-hander had a 3.24 ERA in 25 innings in the majors last year and then pitched 6 1/3 scoreless innings in the postseason. The injury could leave Brad Thompson as the Cardinals' top right-handed setup man, assuming that Looper remains a starter. Mar. 8 - 5:54 pm et

Not a big deal fantasy-wise but Kinney really put it together at the end of last year.

If Izzy isn't 100% this season, the Cards are screwed.
