Clay Hensley (shoulder) tossed three scoreless innings Thursday at Single-A Jupiter.

 

Hensley was placed on the disabled list in early May with a hairline fracutre of his left scapula. He needed only 20 pitches to get through the three-inning appearance and is cruising toward a late May return.

Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but doesn't it seem odd you'd have a reliever toss 3 scoreless innings when he usually only throws 1? I know he only threw 20 pitches but think about the cool-down period between innings, not sure that's the smartest idea for a guy coming back from injury, unless they have other plans.

 

Could it be that they're going to stretch Hensley out to put him back into the rotation?

I think it's more because he only needed 20 pitches to do the 3 innings which means he hadn't throw much in 1.

 

 

Hey Admin. Yeah I just edited my post to make reference of that, sorry it probably wasn't there when you read my post. Still not sure if that's a great idea though for someone coming back from injury because of how his arm would have cooled down between innings. You're probably right, I just thought it was a bit strange.

If Hopper didn't poop the mattress tonight, I'd almost be tempted to see if he can start. Maybe next year, since Javy is gone and a lot of our bullet is club controlled plus we should have another 2-3 plus arms ready (Ceda, Buente, Marine).

 

 

 

No, Hopper's terrible as a starter.

 

I'm tempted to carry eight relievers, considering Ozzie Martinez does nothing but sit on the bench for this team.

Im not at all a fan of the Hopper starting, and to be honest, I'm not a fan of him on the mound this year. He's been terrible between AAA and here.

 

 

Weren't his terrible AAA numbers a result of one really really terrible outing? Besides that one outing, I think he was fine.

He gave up 8 hits and 7 runs in that one inning.

 

In his other 13.2 innings, he had 7 walks and 10 strikeouts and 4 runs.

 

The runs were fine, but between the majors and minors, he's got 13 BB, 16 Ks in 20 innings. His control's been crap all year and he's allowing way too many base runners.

:| It's all happening. Every last bit of it. I wanted to carry 8 relievers early on, and you can make any logical backing for your argument but the fact stands that even if you don't think it would've made sense now, in hindsight it wouldn't have been so bad.

 

Because yes, Ozzie Martinez is awfully useless. I don't know why he hasn't gotten a start yet though, he's not even being used despite being useless.

His arm is fine, it was his left shoulder that was hurt, not his pitching arm. Most of us know this but the report listed above says nothing about which shoulder.

:blink: Holy blast from the past ... where've you been, sir?

 

How you doing sir? I've still been on the site just haven't really been posting. I used to post more in the Bull Pen, but most of the people I enjoyed arguing with have been gone.

Well, warm welcomes back to you!

Aren't there two scapula's on each shoulder? OK, I missed it, just saw (shoulder) parenthetically.
