And Shawn Hill gets the non-curly W.
Hill seems to have had the worst medicals ever. Two Tommy Johns, plus a surgery to relieve pressure in the nerves in his pitching arm. That's the one I remember when he was with the Nats...and it turns out to have been a mistake. Unnecessary.
Says he had pain all the time; spent time between starts just recovering enough from the pain to try again.
A doctor (Tampa Bay Devil Rays?) finally noticed that a bone in his back (approximately) would cut blood flow to his arm every time he threw. That is, cause of problem far away from where the symptom show. They removed a rib, and he now pitches without pain.
Got picked up by Blue Jays -- he's from a suburb of Toronto -- while pitching for the Canadian national team in some tournament.
Take a look at his Baseball Ref entry and see the money he made from baseball...at or below major league minimum, although only counts his salary through 2009. http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/h/hillsh01.shtml
Hats off to Shawn Hill!
