Hagerty had experienced no physical problems during an impressive spring in minor league camp. Scouts from other clubs were raving about his 94-95 mph fastball and his improved slider, and wondered how he lasted until the 32nd overall pick in the 2002 draft . But while warming up for his final spring-training start on Friday, he threw a slider and felt a pop in his elbow...

...Hagerty, who signed for $1.15 million , went 5-3, 1.13 at short-season Boise in his pro debut last summer, helping the Hawks win the Northwest League championship. He had a 50-15 strikeout-walk ratio in 48 innings and limited opponents to a .189 average. Managers ranked another Boise lefty, Andy Sisco, and Hagerty as the two best pitching prospects in the league.

Kerry Wood, Beanball Ben Christensen, John Lieber, Ohman & now Hagerty. It's not just the Sox pitchers that have arm problems. Seems to me it goes with the territory.

Yep, I'm glad it is the elbow, and that they identified it quickly enough so that he should be back next Spring. Luke was pitching extremely well during minor league camp.

It's too bad for him. I had him targeted as a player I would have really liked to have seen the Sox pick.

I still can't believe the Sox would draft Ring over Brownlie or Hagerty among several others. But hey, I guess $$$ and signability was more important in this case, although I disagree.

Definitely comes with the territory.
