Cameron Coffey has struggled to recover from Tommy John surgery and shut himself down after “not feeling right”. Coffey’s velocity has peaked around 85-86 MPH and some believe he has a slow arm. Maybe that’s because he’s taking longer to heal but it’s not good news no matter how you look at the situation.
Aaron Wirsch threw well in extended spring but he pulled an oblique muscle and will be held back until he heals.
Coffey should be healthy, as it’s been over a year since he had surgery. Wirsch was another guy that had me excited, Joe Jordan said his changeup was better than Brian Matusz‘s coming out of high school, that’s impressive.
UPDATE: NYOrioleFan pointed out in the comments that Coffey will undergo an MRI on the 17th. I’ll have a post up with the results as soon as I hear the news.
