As we watch the Thanksgiving parades Baseball Betsy and I are reminded that baseball injuries never take a day off.
Our good buddy, who we call son and Phillies young pitching prospect Feliberto Sanchez, is facebooking Betsy and I from a hospital bed in suburban Philadelphia.
He underwent knee surgery Tuesday after suffering the injury during a workout in the Dominican Republic last week.
We are happy to report Feliberto is in good spirits. He hopes to be back in Clearwater Sunday or Monday to start his rehab to get back on the mound for spring training.
Baseball injuries in the offseason are nothing new. Roman Quinn battled back from an achilles injury several years back and has come back stronger than ever. Comcast SportsNet just posted an interesting article about Roman and his recovery from his injury. See here.
Jesse Biddle has returned to Philadelphia after suffering from elbow complications pitching in the Puerto Rico Winter League. Reports from the Phillies tell us that it is nothing serious and he should be ready for spring training. See Here.
We wish Feliberto and Jesse well as they recover from offseason injuries and look forward to seeing them soon.
Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!
