The reports I've seen are his shoulder is as good as it's going to get. That doesn't mean 100% to me.

well he hasnt pitched good at all this spring, i acknowledge that but this is the last ive read about his health:

"Peavy acknowledged difficulty locating his fastball, but was pleased with his breaking ball. Moreover, he is happy to finish spring training healthy. "This was a blessed spring," he said. "We haven't talked about my arm at all." Apr 2 - 5:00 AMSource: Yahoo! Sports

he might take a few starts to be able to locate his pitches like in the past but the fact that he has his health excites me... especially considering where u can draft him

I think we can cross Josh Johnson off the list.

Why? Because he gave up 3 runs to the defending World Series champions? The concern with him is health. He seemed fine.

I was only able to listen to the game on radio, but they said he didn't have the velocity.

haha, yep youre right, lets cross of hanley, stanton and everyone else who didnt do well on their 1st game, really? %-6

he started striking ppl out after the 3rd inning so that was a good sign. he did get tagged a little early but nothing too awful...

and i agree 100%, the question with Josh is his health, only his health bc his stuffs nasty

by your logic, lets all say i was right about Freese! lol, prisoner of the moment my friend :-t

Ok. I just have a bad feeling about him this year. It's probably because he hurt me last year. :-D

The thing with JJ is everyone knows the #1 SP talent is there.
But its a complete crap shoot when it comes to how many games hes going to pitch before he gets hurt.
Hes only made 24 or more starts in a season twice in his entire 6+ year career.
Thats scary.
And imo the DL is the only thing "i shouldve seen coming"

Agreed. Even if JJ (or a lot of the other injury prone guys that have been mentioned) does put up a great season, I definitely won't say that I should have seen it coming. It's a bit ridiculous to expect a perennially injured player to suddenly become the model of perfect health. I feel as if you think that way, you'll be burned far more often than you'll be rewarded.

That being said, there is merit to jumping on high talent injury risks, but only if the price is right...
