From the Daily Herald:
Around the horn: Jason Stumm, the White Sox' first-round pick in the 1999 draft, is back on the mound a year after having reconstructive elbow surgery. The right-handed starter pitched 2 innings for the Sox' Rookie Phoenix team Monday and gave up 2 runs on 2 hits. According to White Sox general manager Kenny Williams, Stumm's fastball topped out at 95 mph. ...

Wow one of our pitchers injured... there's a shocker. I'd almost like to see him take it easy right out of surgery, but it didn't really say how long he's been rehabbing for, so who knows...

Stumm won't have a shot next season, seeing as he'll only be 20 years old at season start and that the highest he's ever pitched was at Burlington (Class A) in 1999.

He might make some decent trade bait, though.

Trade bait nothin'!!! We better hang on to him.

As the old saying goes, "You can never have too much good pitching..."

yea. i'd like to keep him too and see what he can do. you are prolly right with him not making the sox next year. but i would like to see him start in AA at least next year. that is if he has no set backs.

Well he topped out at 95, so he was probably throwing 90-93 most of the time. I saw Rocky top out at 97 yesterday, but he was mostly at 92-93 for his two innings. Isn't the time table for full recovery from Tommy John like 18 months? If he can get healthy, in a couple years he might end up being the best of the bunch.
