Kris Medlen Returns; Peter Moylan May Be Done for the Season
The Atlanta Braves received some good news on Saturday as they saw the return of Kris Medlen to the team as he was activated from the disabled list. He had gone under Tommy John surgery last August. He had been on the disabled list since August 18, 2010. He had become a major contributor for the Braves last season before getting injured.
His addition to the bullpen is a big lift for the team. He had proven his worth from the bullpen and in the rotation. Unfortunately, he will not be able to help in the rotation this season. But, his presence in the bullpen is a big lift.
Especially in light of the bad news that came out yesterday. Peter Moylan has suffered a torn rotator cuff and labrum. He is scheduled to see Dr. James Andrews on Monday to consider his options.
He underwent surgery on his back earlier this season and battled to get back to the team. This injury, if surgery is necessary, could be one that may not allow him to pitch again for a while, if ever. Shoulder surgeries are more complex than the elbow replacement surgeries. Let’s hope it isn’t as bad as it seems for Peter Moylan’s sake. He is a great guy.
