News on him is that they are letting the swelling go down before doing anything else. He is receiving treatment (ice/hot etc) and then they will re-evaluate when he can throw again. He is still on track to throw in about a week and half. Scotty is adamant that he will start the opening day of the season, but the Rays are being very cautious so u may see them hold him back a few starts if they think it is best.
Are they planning on another MRI once the swelling is gone to see if anything was missed?
Not at this time. They are confident that the first MRI showed what was going on. I think if he starts to throw and there is any swelling, they will do another one
This is kind of off topic, but why NOT take a second MRI? Is there some other factor I'm not seeing besides just cost of running the test? For me it seems better to be safe than sorry...
