Alex Wimmers had Tommy John surgery. That's what he's coming back from. a small follow up elbow cleanup late last fall as well. But, there's a reason he was a first round pick, and if he is healthy, there's no reason to believe he can't live up to that.

Great line. So what's the timetable with Wimmers? Will we see him in the Eastern League at some point?
It's hard to believe he's been with the org for almost as long as Gibson. Injuries have really done a number on him. I'd think that this would mean he's going to be on the fast track if he has sustained success. Tonight was a nice start. My guess is that he's in AA by June if he continues to pitch well.

I'd even up that by a month, just one or two more starts in high-A if they are good. The thinking could be, he's 25, let's get him May-June in AA and if he *still* does well let's see how he does in AAA the rest of the season. An innings limit might make the AAA part abbreviated.
