That sucks. He's already kind of marginal as a prospect anyway, he didn't have much room for an injury.

 

Hopefully it is a dislocation without significant damage, and he heals up quick. Obviously that is regardless of his prospect status, you just hate to see kids trying to make it get hurt.

Short, an OF prospect, crashed into center field wall Thursday in Surprise. Left shoulder dislocation, torn labrum.

What a shame, hard working kid.

That should help him come back strong. At least this gives him a full year to rehab and recover.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Chicago White Sox outfield prospect Brandon Short was ruled out for the 2012 season after test results revealed a dislocated left shoulder and a torn labrum.

 

Short, 23, suffered the injury Thursday while crashing into the center field catch while unsuccessfully trying to catch a deep drive by Texas' Luis Martinez in the eighth inning of Thursday's game at Surprise Stadium. Short will undergo surgery soon.

 

Short was ranked as the Sox's 18th top prospect by Baseball America's 2012 Prospect Handbook. Short has a .285 batting average over four minor league seasons. He batted .262 with 29 doubles, 13 home runs, 60 RBIs and 21 stolen bases in 130 games at Double-A Birmingham last season.

 

Short batted .274 with four home runs, 15 RBIs and 23 runs in 29 games for Mesa of the Arizona Fall League.

Torn Labrum? Ugh, that sucks.

 

I had surgery for a torn labrum and capsular damage. As I recall, I was pretty useless for a few days after surgery... but after about 3 months of PT I was pretty close to normal. Then a few more months of conditioning, and supposedly you can be back to 100%. I never really did get back complete throwing strength, but everything else came back OK.

As if there wasn't already a negative feel about the minor league system, a harsh injury to an OK prospect sucks. I'll be stunned if we see Brandon Short in any prospect rankings ever again. He's not really that good, take away a year of playing time and add in that he may not be 100% again. Ugh

He will be 100% again. It's a fairly straight forward surgery. They just tack down the labrum and allow it to heal. This is the same surgery TCQ had on his shoulder before th Sox got him. His talent is the question not the health after the surgery.

Quentin never really seemed to have the throwing arm with the Sox that he was supposed to have had in Arizona's system though.

Remembering back to him throwing out someone at first from LF, I disagree

Quentin was known to have a strong or at least above average arm.

 

We saw glimpses, but never on a consistent basis.

 

As far as Short goes, he was always going to struggle to make it at any position besides CF (where he's not suited) because of his lack of power and relatively low walk rate. He was/is a little bit similar to John Shelby, Jr., albeit with a higher batting average and a bit less athleticism.

The injury was to Quentin's non-throwing shoulder. It was his lead shoulder for hitting. I you remember he had to wait awhile to begin hitting during that first Spring.
