Schmidt needs elbow surgery

Postby jdh » Sun Oct 05, 2003 1:30 pm

Jason Schmidt (P) SF 10/5/2003
Schmidt will have surgery to repair a torn tendon in his elbow this week, an injury he has had since August, the Giants revealed on Saturday to the San Francisco Chronicle reports. It turns out that the Giants' medical staff recommended season-ending surgery back in August. Perhaps now the whispers of Schmidt's fortitude can stop, now that we know he was pitching through this injury.



Yet another reason to avoid taking him too early in the draft. Coming off surgery, I wouldn't touch him until at least the 3rd round.

Is it "Tommy John" surgery? Will he be back for spring training?

It doesn't appear that it's TJ surgery; because it seems like he'll be ready for spring training. I still would avoid him in drafts next year because people will take him in the 1st or 2nd rounds.
