My question is was he hiding this injury all of last season which caused his effectiveness to drop off like it did? Even this season at the start of practice he was diagnosed as having muscle spasms. Only after an MRI did they discover the stress fractures in his spine.
That is a legitimate question. I hope that is the case, and Kurt rounds back into form. Having him in the pen, or as a Sunday/midweek starter would be very useful later this year, or next year.
That being said, I feel like it is still way too early to tell if he could even pitch well enough to compete against SEC competition, let alone get any kind of important relief role.
