Did Koda Glover have TJ surgery?
« Topic Start: September 29, 2019, 10:42:25 PM »
Does anyone know the current status of Koda?  I know he was trying to the PRI approach and not go under the knife, but that was supposed to be a six-week shutdown in mid-June then restart in August.  He didn't pitch an inning anywhere this season.

Last I saw was that he was getting PRP in June

Koda Glover sighting: https://www.swtimes.com/sports/20191022/ringgold-glover-proud-of-how-far-nationals-have-come

had 3 tears in his UCL and was shut down.  Hoping to be ready for ST next year and avoided TJ.

That article is worth reading.  It says a lot with what it doesn't say.  And also what it says, which is...eeek.

That does not sound promising at all.  I would be very surprised if he ever pitches for the Nats again, as it's likely that he'll need TJ surgery at some point next year, then it's late in 2021 until he's pitching in rehab.

Is this like Steve Jobs treating his cancer with an all-fruit diet?

The Bear made it back this year.  The team themselves came from "Blow it Up" to 3 wins away from being World Champions.  Good luck to Mr. Glover working his way back and hopefully staying healthy.

Sucks. He had potential, but I felt the same about Cole Kimball a few seasons back.

That's too bad. He looked like he had stuff when he was healthy. Better to be able to walk through like and use both arms normally, though.

sorry to hear this.  Loved his stuff. Hard to recall he was a quick riser with great stuff.  2015 8th round draft choice who made it to the majors the next season.  At least he had 3 years of MLB minimum and a signing bonus, which should be a nice start for whatever he will do going forward.

Anything affecting the shoulder is potentially catastrophic.  Remember David Carpenter -- he went on paternity leave mid season a few years ago -- he's still on paternity leave.

I guess it was TJ and maybe back in 2022, or hang'em up.  He probably made the right call, having not thrown a pitch in a couple of years and looking at at least another year off.  3+ years of rehab is hard enough for an established vet, but for a guy like Glover, it's the kiss of death.  Barrett is certainly the exception to that rule.
