Thread: Hughes/Sanchez/Brackman/Horne injury update

    Hughes/Sanchez/Brackman/Horne injury update

    Humberto Sanchez (Tommy John surgery): The big guy is throwing off a mound and is scheduled to get in a game around June 10. “I have no idea what my velocity is but the ball is coming out of my hand as good as ever and my breaking pitch and off-speed stuff is good,” he said. “I can’t wait to get with a team and get started.” Sanchez’s wife is due in two weeks, so that will take up some of his time. He is hopeful of getting to the majors in September but that could be a stretch.

    Andrew Brackman (Tommy John surgery): He is only nine months removed from his surgery and is still in the process of rehabbing his arm by throwing fastballs off a mound. He will not pitch in any games this season.

    Phil Hughes (cracked rib): He still can’t do much beyond conditioning. No throwing, yet. They want to make sure he is fully healed, which they hope an x-ray will show later this month. Hughes was sporting his new glasses, however. He’ll be getting a different pair for when he pitches. It was good to see Phil, who is a favorite among the writers.
    Update on Alan Horne(bicep tear) from his father:

    74nole on

    Just got through talking with Alan after he completed his workout for today. He threw to live hitters and said that again everything went very well. He didn't feel like anybody was really squaring up on the ball all day. He said his location was good, he was able to stay down in the zone all day, and continues to have both good run and sink late movement on his FB's. He also said his curve and slider were both sharp today and that his change-up was good. Again, he was real pleased with how his arm feels while throwing and after his workout as well. He said he really feels ready to go, just waiting on the green light....He'll work again to live hitters either Thursday or Friday and go in a game down there next Monday. Continuing to look for good things ahead.

    I guess Sanchez won't be that valuable to us in the pen until the 2009 season. As for Horne, hopefully he gets back to full strength soon so he could come up to the majors to make some starts rather than that train wreck Igawa.

    I really would like to see Brackman pan out. We are on a head nod, to head non basis. He recognizes me. Oh and yeah he could be a pretty legit pitcher too.
