OK they said it's possible that he comes back, but you have to think that the recovery is going to be a couple weeks of rest - another MRI to see how it has done healing - then a decision about the season. If he isn't completely without any signs of injury then they'd HAVE to HAVE to shut him down. Right? Right.
If he is I suppose he could work in a couple light starts and go into the playoffs but I don't see that happening. So take all the playoffs things I said to heart. If Strasburg pitches again this year - I'll eat my CAP. (Ummmm Capicola, uhhh Aoili, Provolone sandwich - oh good I can get a new Twitter picture!)
Could it be worse? Well it still can! He could need surgery and that could have a long recovery time. however - not a TJ at least opens up the possibility that it's not that. Which is good.
