Obviously this is not good news and hopefully we'll be able to find out it's not a big deal... Let's all hope!

 

He had struggled in first two innings. Manager came out to check on him and they took him out after 48 pitches.

Now is when we pray for a blister on his throwing hand... or calf injury...

Worst case scenario is Tommy John right?

I went in for an IQ test but fortunately the results were negative.

From a baseball perspective, probably yes.

 

But, let's not get there quite yet... Need to find out more. Hopefully just precaution... Hopefully!

Hey guys, been lurking for a few days.

 

Love prospects, looking forward to discussing and learning a lot more from all of you.

 

I saw this on twitter, figured I would share.

 

I have note here Berrios last FB velo's were 95 94 89 90 89 then exited the game. #twins

  1. Source tells me it was indeed shoulder tightness that forced RHP J.O. Berrios from tonight's start after 48 pitches.

Better than the elbow, at least for now. This is a guy that tired down the stretch last year after putting up a hell of a fight for the first half of 2013. In the immediate future there is nothing to do but rest

I was thinking that as well.  Actually sounds like both he and Kohl Stewart may be getting fatigued.

They were going to give him a rest anyway.... probably should have been a start sooner. Lets hope for the best. Shoulder injuries can be tricky. Good news for the Twins is that Alex Meyer responded well this season to whatever treatment they did for him in 2013. At least JO has that going for him.

 

On a side note. This is one of the things KLaw had against JO. For all the hate he gets around here (justified for being arrogant at times), he does call it like he sees it. Hopefully this is nothing and JO will only miss a couple weeks and finish the year strong.

He wore down last year, and he's already surpassed his season total.  As Smurf suggests, rest is totally reasonable and probably in order at this point; let's not forget how young he is, and at double-A...

I'm not sure shoulder injuries are better than elbow injuries.  Hopefully he's ok.

I was going to say the same thing - shoulder injuries are notoriously tricky to treat and get past.

 

Let the kid rest, he's done more than we could've hoped for this year already.

  1. Morning update on JO Berrios is that he says he feels fine, no pain, no tightness in his shoulder. No further medical evaluation planned.

I'm glad he's fine, but let's get the eval anyway.I know Ft. Myers has a ton of retirees, but I'm guessing they can still find at least one doctor willing to squeeze him.

 

Edit: I guess I'm not sure on the population of the elderly in Conneticut, but perhaps that would be a more appropriate place for a checkup :)

Well, I am no doctor, but it is evident that something happened in that shoulder. I am sure that they are going to check further on this, even when they send the "everything is ok" message.

Shoulder injuries are much, much worse than elbow injuries. It seems like they got him out of there pretty quickly once it tightened up. In a situation like that, one pitch can ruin a career.

If you ain't got no haters, you ain't poppin'.

In some ways they are worse. At their extreme, they are career ending-- shoulder surgeries are far less successful than what TJ is today. A lesser percentage of shoulder injuries require surgery, however. It seems like rest is a much more effective remedy for shoulder soreness than elbow soreness. Thus, I was inclined to be slightly relieved to hear it was a shoulder rather than an elbow.

 

 

Great to hear the news this morning, obviously.

What this most highlights for me is the impact of blogging, twittering and increased prospect scrutiny.

 

In the days before the advent of so much media coverage, we might never have heard about this unless serious damage is later discovered.

 

I have to think that pitchers, particularly young pitchers, have experienced occasional shoulder tightness and fatigue for years.

 

But unless there was a major problem, we just didn't hear about it.  

 

Now we know as soon as anything happens and it seems like every ache and pain sends a ripple of major concern through the team's community.

 

I'm just urging all of us to keep things in perspective before we start panicking or cursing the Twins bad luck.
