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.
I was reading the rototimes updates on him in reverse order to document the injury history, was tough to distinguish between events.
However the injury and the surgery for said injury may be significant, initial injury causes time missed, then the surgery to repair said injury (if required) prolongs time missed.
What can one really expect from Rocco in a season at this point? I really think of Matt Lawton when I think of Rocco, Rocco may hit for better average, but will K more.
