Janssen out for the year

Postby Havok1517 » Wed Mar 12, 2008 12:38 pm

The Fan 590 in Toronto reports that Casey Janssen will miss the season with a torn labrum. The Toronto Star has since confirmed the news.

Janssen will undergo surgery after cutting a Tuesday warmup short due to pain in his right shoulder. Jesse Litsch will likely break camp as the team's fifth starter, and suddenly that Armando Benitez signing makes a little more sense. Janssen was a workhorse for the Jays last season, appearing in 70 games and finishing 2-3 with a stellar 2.35 ERA.

Too bad, he looked liked a pretty good sleeper pick this year.

Ridiculous, how much bad luck can a team have from season to season? :-C

It's not a HUGE deal, there's enough depth to make up for him, and he was probably due for a regression as well, but it does suck. I guess it was lucky we signed Benitez about an hour before Janssen got hurt.

Ya its really too bad about Janssen, he really made some nice strides last year.

I still think their pen will still be up there if Ryan comes back strong and League stays healthy.

League,Accardo,Ryan is a solid 3.

Oh I'm not saying it's still not a solid bullpen, we're basically replacing Janssen with Ryan in what was one of the best bullpens in the league last year. But to see something like this AGAIN, it pisses me off.

How often do pitchers even come back from torn labrums? I remember this is what Mike Sirotka had for the Jays years ago, and he never pitched again.

This just really sucks for Casey Janssen, he had such a promising career as a starter/reliever ahead of him.

It's too bad for Janssen, he was pretty awesome last year and he would probably have taken over for Litsch if the kid struggled during the season. I just hope the Jays don't have to rely on Armando Benitez for a single out this year.
