Tanner, you’re scaring me, man. I hope you really warmed up before throwing. And you’re staying within your doctor’s limits, right? Don’t get fooled into thinking that just because things feel good that you can push the envelope. It ain’t worth it to risk re-injury. Be patient - you’ll get there in proper time and you’ll be strong and healthy.

#8

Yea, Dr. Andrews knows what hes doing, that man has extended more pitchers careers than anyone else on the planet, some with hall of fame credentials like Clemens, Schilling I believe, Smoltz, ect…

yesterday went good, i did cardio- 6 poles sprinting, and lifted with my lower body, my arm felt great, didnt throw at all, but i stretched it and it was a little stiff but no pain, the team lost both games and its obvious i need to get back, but i dont want to rush it, today i od 3 sets of 45 ft throws, ill let ya know how it goes, well i gotta go coach little kids now, ill update soon


#10

Sounds good, how much longer are you expecting before you are back at full health? At this rate, my guess would be another 2 or 3 weeks at most!

Well I guess despite the fact that I don’t know how big or well conditoned you were at that point compared to now, I supposed that bodes well for me. I’m 5’10" projected at 6’2"-6’4", very well conditioned, and throw 75-80 right now. Were you on any scouts radars before your injury?
