I agree. It's the time off that concerns me the most rather than the injuries. I mean, any surgery around the throwing elbow is something of a worry, but these proceedures aren't exactly the type that throw up huge red flags. Be warry, but if you can get Gagne for cheap, he's a great gamble.cordscords wrote:Put me in the middle of this little argument.
Gagne is not a complete injury risk. However you should take a cautious approach in trading for him, and if you already own him and get an offer of a proven player who isnt an injury risk, take it and run.

this surgery from a year ago was non-structural--a clean-up, if you will. he returned to pitch effectively at the end of the season. the pain he felt in spring was from a nerve that has now been removed.
call me a fool--i'm not out to win a popularity contest--but i hold pretty fast to the notion that his return will be successful.

again, i don't have an axe to grind, but i've noticed people throwing around the doomed-to-fall-apart crap too often. sometimes, people actually, well, heal. it does happen.
