Crochet's arm fine

I hope I am really wrong  but this fore arm tightness sounds like a early symptom of Tommy John

Is he turning into Tommy John?

FWIW I looked at the  video of Crochet leaving the mound and he did not appear to be in pain.  Not sure that means anything but I thought i would mention it

That sucks. Hopefully he can avoid TJ.

It sounds bad but I would try conservative treatment first so you can keep him on the roster and send him down instead of 15 months of service time getting lost on the DL.

Oh god, I didn’t even think of the Kopech like implications of an injury.

It usually happens at once.  A pitcher will tell you he either felt it snap or heard it pop.  They know the moment it happens.  That's why i'm optimistic it's a strain or a cramp.  He didn't react like it snapped.  

If I remember correctly, Kopech had no idea he tore his UCL.  Didn't he say he was surprised by the diagnosis?  It seems that sometimes the pitcher knows immediately he injured himself, and sometimes they don't know.

If it is TJS, i assume this is another Kopech situation where he is going to be on the mlb IL all next year? Or can the Sox option him?

That's why I said it usually happens at once.  There are times when the ligament is so significantly frayed that it just breaks away which is what happened to Kopech. The more more frequent injury is the ligament snapping at once.

Garrett Crochet prays that he turns into Tommy John.  Dude had 26 year career and a borderline HOF one at that.  If we got that from Crochet, it would be a win of the highest magnitude.

They are waiting for the DNA test to come back to see if the transformation into Tommy John is proceeding as planned.

Wait, are you telling him no, to jerking off?  That's just rude.

And if we can trade him after seven productive seasons along with a utility infielder for the equivalent of Dick Allen I'll be ecstatic!

Sox stayed overnight in California. They just landed, so maybe tomorrow they’ll check him out.

I think the ligament never really snaps at once. Of course at some point it will snap but it always was weakened before, an uncompromised UCL won't tear.

One theory with the forearm strains that sometimes occur before tj is the ligament kinda gets stretched out or loosened a little and then forearm muscles try to do the job of the ligament and stabilize the elbow which can lead to overload of those muscles when throwing and subsequently muscle strains.

Not sure if that is really true though and even if it is not every strain must be related to an ucl problem. Often forearm strains occur before ucl injuries but sometimes they are just forearm strains and the elbow is ok after a couple weeks of rest.

Bad sign we haven’t heard anything. 
 

I didn’t want to be Jump to conclusions mat, but TJ  seems more and more likely. 

Don’t they typically announce Tommy John issues pretty quickly?

I think anything big they’ll let it ride a few days and not try to pile on
