That's got to instantly add at least $10 million dollars to whatever they are offering Darvish right now.  Which would represent 10X my (projected) lifetime earnings.  Because of a finger owwie.  Now THAT hurts.

It will be interesting to see whether this is a new injury, or something lingering from last season.

So does this push him back to making is 2018 debut like early May if we are lucky?Can't expect him to be ready after 10-12 weeks with no Spring Training.

This also means he will not meet the innings for the option to pick up.

So Santana should be ready sometime at the beginning of May which always seems to actually mean June?

It said in the tweet that it started last season and gave it an injection.

Well this complicates things! Odds for Gonsalves and Meija in the opening day rotation just increased. Berrios Gibson Gonsalves Meija and your guess is as good as mine.

Lemonade: 

 

  • That takes care of the potentially vesting extension.
  • It gives a chance for 2 of Romero/Gonsalves/Littel/Enns/Jorge to show that they belong.

Why not have the surgery right after the postseason game?This is the same finger he needed injections for, right?

 

Our horrible rotation just got considerably worse.

I get why they may not have done it immediately but...

 

December, maybe? Or even early January?

I'd like to imagine he injured it in his last game. A lot of middle finger injuries could occur at Yankee Stadium. :)

Couldn't an injury like this be tested before spring training prep to see if it is indeed better or not? Waiting until crunch time to give it a go doesn't leave enough time to adequately deal with the injury or find a replacement. That's a bad spot to put your team in.

 Pretty terrible timing, but I hear there are still some arms available on the FA market...

Bizzare they wait until now to do this. This definitely brings my Falvine fanboy level down a few notches.

It's Minnesota. We're lucky he doesn't need TJS.

Sign Yu Darvish.

 

Did someone say that already? If so, I'll just say it again. Sign Yu. Give him six years. I don't care.
