Just out of curiousity, why do you list the injury ... and then the surgery for it seperate. It really doesn't make any sense unless your just tryig to have more fun with your list.
Anyways his first 2 years he averaged 144.5 games, to me that isn't anything to be worried about. I'm not sure what the average is for a major league but I am willing to bet it's not far off that. Obviously the ACL and Tommy John injuries really hurt, but it isn't something to be overly concerned with. Patterson I believe had the same injury and he is running all over the place, and elbow surgery on a non pitcher isn't something should effect him long term. Yes it sucks he had these injuries in a short time span and it could mean he is injury prone, I guess I'm just willing to give him a bit more time before I slap that label on him.
