Aardsma To Have Surgery


More bad news Mariner fans…

 

Aardsma to have Tommy John Surgery.

-per Shannon Drayer

 

I have to admit I saw this coming. I was specifically thinking about it after Brett Anderson was announced to have surgery and Jeff Sullivan’s post over at Lookout Landing yesterday.

This could change the Mariners plans with Brandon League. I still think they could flip him if they get an the right offer. But I don’t see that happening and really I haven’t seen it happening. It doesn’t make it any better that neither Dan Cortes or Josh Lueke have been very good this year.

While they haven’t been bad, they haven’t been nearly as exciting as any of us thought. Its too bad they both continue to squander an opportunity in which a big league club could use their help.

As for Aardsma, he’s a great guy personally (from what I can tell and been told), it’s just too bad to see this happen to someone who’s worked so very hard. Best of luck to him and a quick recovery.

    It will certainly lower his cost to the club if they ever resign him, which considering they have paid him over $4MM this year for no production, would seem fair and proper. Given the circumstances I think they should hang on to League, unless they get an offer too good to refuse. Z is good at signing a bunch of slim chances and finding bullpen fodder among them.
