i mean it's not their fault SS/JZ/Solis all had TJ surgery ... these things happen ... but again, I'll agree the way they handled Solis was not the right way.

I think the question is two fold.

One, are the Nats drafting players with signs that TJ may be in the future?

Two, are the Nats doing anything that may put pitchers arms in danger?

I dunno. If there was a difference of opinion between doctors, do you really want to force surgery on a player if it may not be necessary? Either way it's a shame, but at least the team has experience now with dealing with the recovery aspect... sadly.

Even if Solis would of had surgery in November, he would be out for all of 2012. I have to believe that it was Dr. Yocum that suggested waiting, I won't pretend that I know as much as he does about this type of injury.

We've had a TJ surgery victim 3 out of the last 4 years. Is that a coincidence?

I don't know if the Nats really have a higher rate of TJ victims as compared to other organizations.  It just seems that way because their victims have been more prolific.

I agree. I guess the thinking may have been that delaying surgery by a couple months wouldn't have much long term impact on Solis' career and that either way, he'd miss the season if surgery was needed.

Well, if they were more prolific, then by definition, we'd have more victims. I think you meant to say our victims have been more prominent :)

Strasburg/Zimmermann are hard throwers and both had the surgery done early on in their time with DC ... i'm sorry I just don't think the nats are the reason why these guys are getting TJ surgery.

Look around the league, it happens everywhere.

That maybe true...but I am pretty sure we have the worst medical staff in the Majors...

I used to really be in their corner, but it's hard not to grow a bit more skeptical over the years.  Just hire Dr. House and he'll take care of business.

He'll just dick around for 9/10ths of the season until right at the last minute when he'll figure out the correct diagnosis.  Actually, maybe we do have Dr. House.

Sounds like what Flores went through with Dr. Andrews

Sammy is on twitter at http://twitter.com/#!/Sammy22Solis

A quick read of his posts says he had his surgery  11 weeks ago (9 as of the date of the post) and is in Florida doing rehab.

Byron Kerr at MASN.com had an update on Solis about a week ago:

Here are the latest updates on pitching prospects Sammy Solis (Tommy John) and Matt Purke (shoulder). Each are continuing to rehab in Florida and are making their mound progressions. These are rough estimates, but the Nationals are hoping for a mid-May return for Solis and a late May return for Purke. These estimates can change, depending on how both progress this month, but this gives

Quote from: Byron Kerr
For the first time since 2011, left-hander Sammy Solis, rated as the No. 8 prospect in the Nationals system by Baseball America, will start for high Single-A Potomac on Tuesday night, according to Nationals director of player development Doug Harris.
Solis, who has recovered from Tommy John surgery, has been throwing in games in extended spring training at the Nationals' training facility in Florida.
The Nationals have scheduled Solis for three innings with Potomac as the P-Nats begin a series at Frederick on Tuesday night. If everything goes as planned, he would then be ramped up to four and then five innings in successive starts.
"I saw him in his outing before his last one in Florida," Harris said. "He really threw the ball well. Threw strikes with three pitches. Quality was good at times. He really appears to be progressing nicely.
"We want to put him in a competitive situation, in length of outing and intensity. We have a plan defined, we will see how it goes from there."
Solis was hitting the mid-90s prior to Tommy John and the Nationals will let him go out and pitch Tuesday, not concerned with hitting those numbers so early in his return from major surgery.
"He has no restrictions," Harris said. "The ball is coming out of his hand really well, really cleanly. His velocity has been strong, consistent. He is right where he should be velocity wise."
Solis had Tommy John surgery on March 6, 2012. Solis was 8-3 with a 3.26 ERA in 17 starts in the minors from 2009-2011, with 93 strikeouts and 23 walks. He last pitched for Potomac in 2011, when he went 6-2 with a 2.72 ERA in 10 starts.
He'll make his first start of the year tomorrow night.

Good. Wish Purke would show such encouraging news... But that doesn't seem likely.

As long as the velo is there, and he doesn't get hurt, that's all that really matters right now.

He is on the DL again. I can't find out why.
