Stated in another thread that I thought he'd do no better than what Wood did in 2000 after TJ surgery (4.80 ERA and 1.45 WHIP). I think people are fooling themselves if they expect better. Velocity isn't the problem the first year back, but location.
Nice post. I wouldn't start AJ this year at all myself. Guys rushed back before 18 months (AJ 14), haven't fared well. Wood was rushed back and had a high era. In a keeper, sit on AJ. In a non keeper, trade him.
