I guess you hope he's only 21 and still has plenty of time to recover, but losing a season to TJ and another to shoulder surgery certainly doesn't bode well for him having a career playing baseball.

Yep.  Except Purke at least was a college dude.  Overall, people don't seem to acknowledge the injury risk in drafting 18-year-olds who throw in the upper 90s: a lot of those dudes break, but when they're doing it on a college roster, you haven't wasted a first round pick on them.  It also makes the choice harder when Denaburg ages out of the MiLB control years, because he'll still be reasonably young.
He's the type of guy that could be out of the game 5 years then try a comeback like in the movies.
