BJ Ryans effectiveness when he comes back

Postby crimson knuckles » Sat May 05, 2007 10:22 am

Anyone worried that BJ won't be able to get back in form after coming back from that elbow injury. I have him on my dl but really wonder how good he'll be when he comes back.

Anyone think that he can be dominant again this year?

It's hard to tell. Some people were predicting elbow injury for a long time and rest may heal but TJ might be in his future. Too bad since he's a pretty dominant pitcher.

I question the same thing and part of me thinks that there is a chance that he might not return this season at all.

I'd try and trade him to the current Accardo owner with the line of, "Hey. Now no matter what happens in Toronto; you're assured of getting all of the saves."

Get some value for him while the Accardo owner is still thinking about the saves his new pickup may get him (and lose when and if BJ comes back).

JMO. Do with it what you feel is best.

It's worth a try but I found that it is near impossible to trade players that are injured especially pitchers with elbow issues.

Yeah, I should have bolded the word "try" in my original post. ;-)

It really hard to trade guys who are the 60 day DL. Considering that means he is out for at least another month and a half. The 60 day DL means that his team has pretty much declared that he is goning to have a very long road to recovery. I am not really sure it really even worth holding him in leagues that aren't very deep and have limited DL spots.
