I think thereís a pretty decent chance heís back at his normal levels come next spring, although if he doesnít, it happens, unfortunately.
Ah, so he didn't have any real pitching opportunities before the fall league? Also, I still haven't seen anything regarding his velocity thus far, so I'd be interested in seeing that.

One bit of good news is that Luis Robert had his first extra base hit yesterday. I think I saw he's hitting .292/.346/.333 - he's also REALLY fast in the clips I have seen.

Go Sox!!!
