Followed Alex Wimmers at Ohio State just wondered how he is doing with the Twins health wise?? I know he only pitched 5 innings last year. I know he had surgery on his right elbow.The kid is so talanted really hope he gets healthy and can show his real self in pro ball. Thanks Drew

He had his surgery earlier in the year than Gibson if im not mistaken so hopefully he gets a few more innings and gets a spot in the arizona fall league.
Yup-- Wimmers had his on Aug 2 and Gibson on Nov 7.
Hoping Wimmers can come back strong and healthy! It will be great to see him finally get some consistent, meaningful and effective innings in.

His recovery has been going well, as has been expected, but no timelines have been set at this point. I think that Gibson's recovery was unusually good in 2012, and players come back from it differently, so I think if estimated the same timeline for Wimmers (even though he had surgery earlier), it is conservative and realistic. If it's quicker, that's just a bonus, really.
