Walker Buehler 2018 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, this was kind of expected.  Not sure why they waited until they actually placed him on the DL to say that he has a microfracture, but I suppose it could be a lot worse.  At least it's not an arm injury, and like others have said, hopefully his time on the DL will be fairly short.  Unless he made it worse by pitching with it, you would think the healing process would have already started, so maybe he really will only be out 2-ish weeks.

 

It's a shame to have him on the DL, as he's become "Must See TV", but now he will go deeper into the season like somebody else said earlier.  Maybe it will be a blessing in disguise, as if he pitches deeper into the season and they are in a tight race for the division/wild card, maybe they will completely scrap the innings limit plan.
