2019 Bullpen

12 posts in this topic

We all know that our pitching has been stupid this year...Has Billy made moves looking forward to 2019?

The acquisition of Jerez and Buttrey to go along with Anderson, Parker and Alvarez seems like the framework of something better than we have seen.  I also like Robles and Cole.  A few mulit-inning arms.

+ Middleton Meyer Ramirez and Jewell when they come back

and some rookies who could have some impact in the near future Lillis-White, Rhoades, Stevens

We could have a good bullpen next year and if Eppler trades for or signs a closer we could have one of the better pens...

FYI, anyone who had TJ surgery during the season in 2018, will not be available for 2019.

Middleton is out until 2020, Wood is out, JC Ramirez is out.

 

Jewell did not have TJ but that ankle injury is gruesome, he may not be ready by Spring Training.

Tommy John Surgery recovery is at least 12-14 months, and can be as much as 18-20 months; so while JC Ramirez has a possibility of being ready to go by like the All-Star Break, it's just as likely he's out for 2019.

This organization has always been cautious.

Skaggs had his in August of 2014, missed 2015, pitched just 50 innings in 2016, then just 85 in 2017.

12 months is the recovery time for TMJ surgery 

We'll see Middleton and Ramirez sometime in 2019...likely June/July

Heaney had TMJ surgery July 2016 and pitch 5 IP against Baltimore on August 18th 2017

Yeah, that's optimistic @mulwin444

I doubt that Ramirez will be back, but anyone who had it in June or Later definitely won't be back. Heaney came back in just over a year, 13 months, and pitched horribly and just 20 innings. He wasn't back to normal until Spring of this year.

Look, you are taking the most pessimistic option possible...

Anything is possible from 12 - 20 months.
