Robb Nen----what's his status?

Postby bigwilly » Tue Feb 17, 2004 12:45 pm

Anyone have an update on the status of Nen? last I read, he was still only throwing in the high 80's. If anyone has any links to info on him, please post.

I never even heard he was pitching at all...

here is the last I saw from yahoo

Feb 9 The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports San Francisco Giants CL Robb Nen (shoulder) claimed his injury was "misdiagnosed." Giants trainer Stan Conte later said it was more a "difference of opinion" among doctors that contributed to the now-precarious status of Nen's career. Nen and Conte reiterated they are hopeful for a full recovery in time for opening day, but each is also aware of the possibility Nen might never pitch again. Nen, who is working back from his third surgery in a seven-month span, revealed that part of his frustration stems from his belief that the first surgery -- 15 months ago -- should have corrected the problem.

Here is how I would classify Nen as of now:
25% returns and is effective
25% returns and struggles
50% his career is over

You may want to adjust your rankings for some sort of outlook along these lines. It is pretty risky now to pay big bucks for him or take him without a decent backup option.

trevisc, hey hey trevisc, it's your pick in our mock keeper. I thought I PMed you. Have a nice day buddy.

most of the drafts i've seen have him going 15-16th round.. probably a lot people gun-shy after drafting in the early rounds last year. If you do draft Nen, I would burn my next pick on Herges who is next in line to close.. aka this year's Worrell lol
