One of the maddening things about sports is injuries. Take the Phillies, for example. The team makes a change, taking Chan Ho Park out of the rotation, adding JA Happ, who promptly throws a couple good games. Things are getting better, right? Then, out of the blue, Brett Myers has the latest chic injury- a bad hip labrum.
Derrick Lutz (Front Royal 04) was off to an excellent start for Double-A Carolina in the Cincinnati Reds system, going 1-2, 1.99, with 2 saves, 1.23 WHIP, 4.0 BB/9, and 6.7 K/9 in 22 2/3 innings. Now, of course, he's on the disabled list with an inflamed right elbow. Maybe this is from pitching so often (he pitched in 20 of the 49 games so far), or maybe just... by the way most injuries happen- chance.
Anyway, congrats on the fast start, Derrick, and hurry back!
