You don't hear much about tricep injuries with pitchers. Can this be considered as serious as an elbow or shoulder injury for a pitcher?? I'm not really sure how to guage how serious of an injury this is...

If it is truly triceps tendinitis, then he should be fine with rehab and rest. It is no way near as severe as a UCL injury, or even tendinitis of the flexor muscles in the forearm. Injuries to the inside of the elbow are such a problem because of the tremendous stress placed there during the pitching motion. The only concern with his injury right now is whether or not there are any bone spurs in the area; that would be a problem.

BTW -- I also have Lackey as the ace in my staff, so I'm in the same boat!

Now, it looks like mid May, it may even be June until we see Lackey.. Read this today. He will NOT even throw until MID April and they want to give him 4-5 MINOR league starts

First good news I've heard in a while....

http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/6953/news


Mar 29 Lackey (strained triceps) began his throwing program on Friday -- one week ahead of schedule -- and the Angels are hopeful that he'll be back by early May, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Recommendation: It's certainly promising that he was able to return to baseball activities one week earlier the short end of the initial three-to-four week timetable. Lackey has tumbled down the draft board a bit in recent weeks, so depending on the cost and the other pitchers you're able to lock up during your draft, he could be worth the risk.

From LA Times:
John Lackey, on the DL because of a triceps strain, has extended his long-toss program to 120 feet and, Scioscia said, has been "throwing aggressively" off flat ground at 60 feet.

Lackey is scheduled to begin throwing off a mound this week and, barring a setback, could return to the rotation in the first half of May.

John Lackey threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Thursday.

Lackey threw only fastballs, but showed nice progress. "He looked great," manager Mike Scioscia said. "He really threw the ball well, nice and easy." Lackey is expected to return in early May.

From Rotoworld:
Apr. 13 - 3:47 pm et
John Lackey (triceps) threw 47 pitches off the mound prior to Sunday's game.

Lackey mixed in breaking balls for the first time today. "It was another positive step," pitching coach Mike Butcher said. "We don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves but right now he looks good."

;-D ;-D ;-D
Can't wait for my ace to come back...sounds like he's making nice progress. We're still probably a month away, but I rather him come back when he's 100% ready.

According to the Los Angeles Times, John Lackey (triceps) "appears on track to return in about three weeks."

Lackey pitched a one-inning simulated game Wednesday and said afterward that he felt "really good." He's scheduled to throw another simulated game Saturday, at which point he could be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment that's expected to last 3-4 starts.



Sweet!!!
