Yeah, why the **** are they letting him play with a TORN muscle? At least let him freaking rehab first.

Btw, we are having some **** luck with our top prospects this year. First Mitchell is out for season; then Phegley, Holmberg and Thompson go down with injuries; and now Morel. This is just some bad bad luck.

Default Holmberg

I don't believe Holmberg is injured he threw 6 shutout innings 3 days ago in Rookie Ball. Huge loss with Morel this will hurt his defense.

The labrum is not a muscle.

How will it hurt his defense? It's in his left shoulder.

There are different types of labrum tears with varying degrees of severity, and to his non throwing shoulder, it shouldn't get worse. If they are letting him continue to play it is probably just a partial tear or fraying. If he has surgury it will probably be a small arthroscpoic procedure that he can fully recover from in two months. So there is no real reason to shut him down.

I guarantee every pitcher in baseball at least has some fraying on the labrum.

I've had a partial tear in my left labrum for ten years. I'm obviously not a professional athlete, but it hasn't stopped me from lifting weights, running, swimming, or playing any recreational sports.

Well I know he's healthy now but I could've sworn I read that all our top picks from last years' draft suffered at some point in the season. Could be wrong but still we are having some bad luck with health this season.

Oops, did not know that. Whenever something is torn, I automatically assume it is some kind of muscle that is damaged. The more you know, I guess.
