News today that Dr. Tim Kremchek will perform “exploratory arthroscopic surgery” on Paul Wilson’s right shoulder Friday.
The Reds’ Opening Day starter has been shut down for basically a month now, his ERA hanging unluckily at 7.77, with minimal information forthcoming about what, if any, progress he was making. Guess that tendinitis was more of an issue than Wilson — who insisted throughout a horrible start to the season that he felt fine — cared to let on.
Is anyone surprised?
