fresh off his highest strikeout total in a game and this happens?!? No good at all. I'm going to assume the worst and figure we can now write off Kelly contributing with the Padres until the 2014 season. Which sucks. I'll look to the Nats (Strasburg/Zimmerman) for inspiration on this outcome. I guess atleast he's not on the 25-man with this happening, sucking away his cheap service time. Much rather have it happen while he's still at AAA. Zimmerman being exhibit A on that point.
definitely something to watch going forward, but this doesn't sound terribly different then what Latos dealt with a couple of years ago, I'm guessing that was when he was pitching only 56 innings in... more
