From C. Trent Rosecrans:
The Reds reliever isn’t ready to go 100 percent yet, still suffering from the inflammation of the right shoulder that bothered him since coming over from the Nationals last season.
Jerry Narron told us Majewski wasn’t cleared and would need a week or so to get ready, then Majewski told us he was OK, he was going to do everything everyone else did, but just do more rehab work after the regular session was done. Then PR director Rob Butcher told us Majewski would do everything but throw from the mound.
Majewski isn’t quite doing everything the other players are doing. As the Reds pitchers took fielding practice (PFP), while the other pitchers threw the ball to home and went to cover first, Majewski didn’t throw home.
Despite today’s news, Majewski was positive about his shoulder and recovery.
Wouldn’t you think that if it were simply “inflamation”, it would be gone after 4-5 months? I’d also have thought that anti-inflamatories and some type of PT would have taken care of it.
I just don’t trust the Reds medical staff enough to believe that this problem is inflamation if it’s still there after 4 months.
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
