Why does a team shut down a pitcher?
Answer: Because what they are doing isn’t working and there’s no immediate hope for improvement.
The problem for ORLANDO HERNANDEZ stems from the wind-up change forced on him by the bunion.
Well, unless they get rid of the bunion it stands to reason this will be a problem again when he tries to come back.
So, cut the damn thing off!
If it takes a year, then so be it. Hernandez can do it if anybody can. I’d rather see him go through the surgery and rehab, then find out he doesn’t have it anymore than to go out hurt and getting ripped.
It’s the only way.
