Betances hopes to return to SI soon

Please, for the love of our bullpen, call up Edwar and Britton
Ladies, look out for Derek

We’ve got, courtesy of loyal reading Marc Resnick, a Dellin Betances sighting. According to an article a PinstripesPlus.com (subscription required), Betances is set to throw a bullpen session today and hopes to return to Staten Island before the season ends in a few weeks. Hopefully, my unfounded idle speculation surrounding the state of his elbow is just incorrect musings of a wondering mind.

    Sweeeeeeeet, the thought of TJ Surgery would have been a real blow.

    Knock on wood

    were his control problems a result of the elbow? he walked 2.7/9 last year and it shot up to 6.12/9 before the injury in 6 starts this year

    I would say so, Dan. Elbow woes are usually connected to control issues, not velocity issues.

    Not related to Betances, but I was wondering what you thought Chamerblain’s usage is going to be like in the majors.

    From what I understand he’ll be used similarily to 96 Mo, in that it will be for multiple innings, but at a lower frequency.

    My question concerns this frequency– a day off, two days off? How long in btw outings would you guess?

    i dont think they’ll use him back to back unless they absolutely have to. pitching multiple days in a row is probably the worst thing you can do to a pitchers arm outside of throwing 200 sliders in a row
