Arrow Wright Easing Back Into Rotation

Wright played catch today with no discomfort, and is expected to start the season as the #5

Quote:
Head trainer Herm Schneider compared the injury to a sprained ankle, and suggested it was caused by Wright overthrowing in his spring debut. He said Wright ``didn't feel any discomfort'' during tests he underwent Saturday morning.
Wright Alright

Score.... I can breathe a little easier now...

Although I still wouldn't be overly shocked if Wright started a game or two in AAA to make sure everything is OK, since he has missed the first two weeks of Spring Training, but then again, I don't know much.

Glad to hear it's nothing bad.

I glad to hear it. I just had a feeling that it wasn't anything super serious.

Naturally I'm happy about this news but I'm afraid I'm still concerned and confused because of these quotes that were in the Yahoo Sports Story:

"I'm just going to have to pitch with a little pain .'' --Danny Wright

"Schneider said an arm specialist has reviewed the results of a recent MRI of Wright and found bone chips

Excuse me? bone chips??

I'm not a doctor but I was a pitcher and I had to have my elbow sliced and diced because of elbow chips. I think the Sox aren't out of the woods yet by any means. They'll know a lot more when Wright actually starts throwing off a mound including breaking pitches.

If he's OK then and especially the day after throwing then I'll feel better.

Hey, do I get a prize or something - that was my guess in the "What do you think is wrong with Danny's arm?" poll?

Anyways, he pitched yesterday (unless we have another wright in the organization that pitches) and seemed to do okay, anyone knows if he had any pain or swelling afterwards?

I do agree that any time someone is pitching in pain that is disconcerting, but I really don't think bone chips are that big of a deal. I don't have any data on that, but from things I've heard and read that is fairly common among big league players.

can anyone cofirm/deny that?

Most major league pitchers has bone chips and pitch with pain. Once the pain becomes to much to handle it becomes a problem.

I'd say my biggest worry about this is Wright possibly altering his mechanics because of the pain and hurting something that way.

The problem is everyone keeps talking about Wright as if healthy it is a given that he is a good pitcher. The guy needed to show some serious progress this year. A slow start in spring training concerns me whether he is healthy or not.

Thank God he's ok. Figure he will be in the number 5 spot the first month or two(When a #5 in not needed so much). I see him moving up in the rotation later in the season, especially in the post season.
