Neshek done?

15 posts in this topic

Seth Stohs, who runs the well-respected Twins blog “Seth Speaks,” is reporting that reliever Pat Neshek will have Tommy John ligament-replacement surgery next week and miss the 2009 season. Stohs cited a source close to the situation.

Neshek was scheduled to have a magnetic resonance imaging exam on his right elbow today, along with an evaluation by Twins physician Dr. Dan Buss.

I heard this too, to bad they didnt just elect to have the Tommy John surgery first, then he would be almost ready to go. Although I think this should have been in the baseball forum wink

I thought he had the corrective surgery already, and was to be good as new next spring.

And why is this here.???????????????????????????

G.C.

If the Twins had read this forum, they'd have traded Nathan and put Neshek in the closer role. Hmmm, maybe they DO have a clue.

For most of the 2007 season Neshek would have been a better closer than Nathan.

Yeah, but how do you know? Maybe he would have cracked and got hit all over the place in a save situation? Nathan is one of the best closers in MLB, period. Everyone has an off day, and him blowing a save or 3 during the season should be expected.

I really think a closer needs to have a powerful fastball and slider. Neshek has a big hook, and a great changeup, but he's lucky if he touches 92. I love him in the setup role, using him as a change of pace type guy.

Too bad we won't be seeing him for a while, and who knows if he returns to his original form.

Trevor Hoffman is available...SD didn't pick up the option on him. He might make a good set up man. Kinda expensive, but probably well worth it.

I think Hoffman's done. He didn't have a very good year last year. He's not worth a large 1 or 2 year deal.

You get what you get from these side armed hurlers. They rarely have long lived careers and especially Neshek the way he whips that arm. Likely seen the last of him in the big leagues...
