Fernando Romero has a torn UCL and is considering TJ surgery. Oi.

Considering TJ? Is there another option for a torn UCL? Barring, of course, not playing baseball...

That really sucks. Another one of the Twins 'good' young pitchers goes down. Felix Jorge was ineffective, Yorman Landa, who knows on him, and now Romera. All three seem to be toast. Such is life following the minors I guess.

Randy Rosario had Tommy John surgery already. Landa had shoulder surgery, out 7 months.

All according to JJ.

Well, I think we'd probably be best off assuming the worst about the future of the MLB staff until we start seeing results at that level. This is happening way too often.

We talked to Jake (Mauer) briefly before the game. Romero is going to go up to Minneapolis and meet with Dr. Steubs. They're sure there are bone chips, but they won't know how much (or if anything) is wrong with the UCL.
