Could we see him throwing sometime this season?
But what I really want to know is will he turn out to be a stud just like everyone thought he would?

There could be throwing in September, but he could be out for all of 2004. When he gets healthy (2005?) he should be at least a decent pitcher or better.

He's somebody to keep an eye on, I guess, but I personally don't see him living up to expectations. Just my opinion of course.

He was supposed to be a super stud in the making, with the way surgery has become quite common, I wouldn't be suprised to see a dominating comeback in 05.

Jer19G is right I just read this from CBSSportsline

Foppert won't be ready to pitch again until September.
(Updated 01/28/2004).

It's too bad that 2 of SF's best pitching prospects had injury plagued rookie seasons. Most picked Foppert and Ainsworth to be good last year, but Foppert blew out his arm and Ainsworth broke his shoulder blade (how the hell did he manage that??). Jerome Williams turned out to be their only young brightspot.

I'd consider Foppert for 2005, but not at all for this season.
