They knew this going in - it's why he fell as far as he did.

I'm not sure the Rangers knew he was going to need surgery, but if it helps the kid then he should have it done.

I don't think they knew he'd have Tommy John surgery. There was some hope he'd be able to play this year. I hope he recovers, and this doesn't kill his career.

I know I read somewhere that it was at least a possibility, if not a certainty that he'd have Tommy John surgery. Besides, it only makes sense - if we were only talking about a sprain, he wouldn't have lasted until the 6th round.

As for Tommy John surgery, it is old hat these days and for a pitcher it's much better than having something wrong with your labrum for example. Indeed, there are so many stories of pitchers coming back stronger from Tommy John surgery that some misguided pitching prospects have inquired about having it on healthy arms.

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/20/sp...20surgery.html

It's not nearly as common in hockey, so I don't know if the elbow recovers for hockey activities as well as it does for baseball, but I'm guessing that it does.

Of course, the timing of the injury could be really bad given where he is in his development... *cough* Jessiman *cough*

My fault HV--I missed a diagonal slash in the link and then my pc crapped out and I had to reboot. It seems fine now.

Well that is pretty terrible.

Even when he comes back in 14 months he will need an entire season to get back into the flow...since by then he will not have played in a game in more then a year and a half.

Let the kid get healthy and figure out this entire mess now instead of it becoming a nagging injury for the rest of his career.

Not cool.

We knew he had a disclaimer though.

Hope the kid makes it back okay and stays healthy.

Well, this is why he fell so far. At least they didnt take him in the 4th or 5th...

He'll be a project, but who knows. Hes a good player, it just might take longer.

I still dont mind having him in the system despite the 14 month layoff.

Good luck Mitch.

It's not like he needs to come back and have his curve hit 94 on the gun. This kind of injury should not hinder him at all once he is fixed up.

This seems to be a fairly common surgery needed by professional baseball players. It's very unlikely that it will end his career.. he'll just be set back a year.

My concern is that the amount of time off the ice at this stage in his career could really set him back. I guess we'll see what kind of drive and desire he really has. I know I'll be rooting for him big time!

It's why he fell in the draft. Get it over with now so it doesn't affect him his entire career.

Okay, for like the dozenth time in the thread, they knew it was a possibility when they drafted him. If he hadn't been injured so seriously he wouldn't have slipped so far.

im okay with this kind of pick......high-risk high-reward kind of pick when the rangers already have too many depth players as it is......this is what i was hoping for this draft and looking at most of the players i would say thats what the rangers did!!......most of the players they chose have high-risk high-reward potential

As others have said, this is why Gaulton fell so far.

There was a suspicion that he would miss a lot of time at a critical period in his development. He can probably come back from the injury and be okay physically, the question is how badly does it set him back? I for one am happy to spend a 6th on a guy who could have gone in the second round and hope his long term development is not hindered too much.

Tough to get value in the 6th round, generally it takes a little luck to do so. Lets hope we get lucky.

Sometimes you have to gamble in the draft, and being it was a 6th rounder IMO it was still a good pick.

2 years down the road, we'll re-assess and who knows. Its not like his career is over.

We all know how quick 2 years can go.
