But it's a similar injury to the one Horcoff was playing with in 2007-2008 in his All-Star year before he went down. In his case he was never really the same after that injury/surgery.
I'm not as worried for RNH however, as his frame and physical maturity aren't at the stage Horcoff's was at the injury time, and his recovery should go more smooth and get him back to baseline.
Either way, pretty major surgery that would have otherwise shut him down for the season if done at any point this season.
Yup, I can confirm this, I didn't want it out there in the event that other teams players, management, etc., read the board and read that and targeted the shoulder in the games.
