Chase Whitley Preliminarily Diagnosed With UCL Tear

Chase Whitley Preliminarily Diagnosed With UCL Tear - MLB Trade Rumors
Yankees right-hander Chase Whitley has received an initial diagnosis of a UCL tear after departing his start early last night Chris Coghlan Jersey, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports on Twitter. A Tommy John procedure is very much on the table, per the report, though the team will not rush to a decision.Whitley, 25, has been a useful swingman for the club since coming up last year. While he posted an unsightly 5 Jake Arrieta Jersey.23 ERA over his 75 2/3 frames last year (compiled in a dozen starts and a dozen relief appearances), Whitley put up 7.1 K/9 against 2.1 BB/9 and drew much better ratings from ERA estimators.His promising campaign last year has carried through to 2015, as Whitley stepped into a rotation void and has provided 19 1/3 solid innings Mike Baxter Jersey. So far, he has registered a 4.19 ERA on the back of 7.5 K/9, 2.3 BB/9, and a 49.2% groundball rate.Whitley, who does not have much velocity, leans heavily on his slider. While he probably does not have a ton of upside, his early career effort suggests that he could settle in as a useful back-of-the-rotation starter and long reliever.That kind of player obviously has function and value, as evidenced by the fact that the Yanks gave lefty Chris Capuano $5MM to return this winter. Capuano is set to return from injury soon, which draws some of the sting of the possible loss of Whitley. But with Masahiro Tanaka and Ivan Nova still working their way back from injury, it would have been nice to have a full complement of depth on hand. 6 Responses to Chase Whitley Preliminarily Diagnosed With UCL Tear Leave a Reply cxz 1 month ago  Well, you never want to see a guy need TJ, and it s certainly unfortunate. I just wonder if by hiding the injury initially, he caused more damage to himself trying to pitch through the discomfort. That could be the difference between trying a rehabbing stint and definitively needing the surgery. frogbogg 1 month ago  Yankee doctors have repeatedly said . a partial UCL tear does not require surgery. So just rest up Chase, you ll be back soon enough.  cxz 1 month ago  I haven t saw the word partial being used in this case yet. I suspect it was originally partial when he had the pain and remained quiet http://www.cubsfansstore.com/cubs/dave-kingman-jersey,but caused a full tear last night in the process of trying to push through it. Hopefully he doesn t need surgery but from the info being put out there, it s not very promising. Jeffrey Toman 1 month ago  Capuano should only pitch against the blue jays. He gets the better of them almost every time. Exclusive Articles Sign up to receive an exclusive weekly article by MLBTR owner Tim Dierkes.
