Just a shame about Morel, I hope they don't have to do surgery, as once they do that, he'll never be the same. Also, it's rotten timing, as at least Crede had developed much more before his back became so troublesome. You have to wonder if this will limit his ceiling.
I've never heard anybody give an explanation of how Danks injury was hurting his performance this year. Was it mechanics, speed, or control? What besides rest (which these rehab starts won't provide) has been done to change that?
