Santana, Miller both go under the knife

Two of the Tribe’s top prospects have had surgery.

For catcher Carlos Santana, the surgery spells a delay in his offseason conditioning. For right-hander Adam Miller, it could spell the end of a once-promising career.

Santana had surgery Tuesday to remove a broken hamate bone from his right hand.

Santana had been pulled out of winter league action in the Dominican because of the flu bug. When he recovered enough to take batting practice, he noticed the hand injury and was shut down. The surgery should prevent him from hitting for about eight to 10 weeks, but it shouldn’t prevent him from being ready for Opening Day at Triple-A Columbus.

“It’s not a setback at all,” manager Manny Acta said. “We’re thankful it was discovered this early. The only downfall is that he wasn’t able to get some playing time in winter ball and make some improvements in certain areas that we wanted him to make.”

Miller, meanwhile, was in the process of rehabbing from the career-threatening surgeries he had on his right middle finger earlier this year. The surgeries aimed to stabilize the flexor tendon in the finger, and the hope was that Miller would be ready to pitch by Spring Training, with an aim on rejuvenating a career that had been thrown out of whack by injuries.

But Miller experienced yet another setback while playing catch at the Goodyear, Ariz., complex, and now the Indians have no timetable for his return to baseball activities. Considering Miller has pitched just 28 2/3 innings in the Minors over the last two years, the chances of him making it to the big leagues seem slimmer than ever.

Well, that just ruined my day.

I feel so bad for Miller. I couldn’t even imagine his state of mind right now. He deserved a chance to pitch in the majors.

Extreme downplay of a broken hamate bone by the organization. The hamate has been known to extremely sap power from a hitter for usually ongoing periods of time. From a HR and deep doubles hitter like Santana, that’s a big deal. As for Miller, it’s just extremely sad. There’s nothing else to say, just sad.

jk, where are you finding the updates? I’m on ESPN.com, MLB.com and the MLB Network. Can’t find squa-doosh.

nevermind, I finally found in on MLB.com

so Milwaukee took Lofgren, good luck to Chuckie three-sticks. The only guy select from AC’s preliminary list of players that has been taken thus far is Zach Kroenke, from NYY to ARI)

“some names that might be worth considering are that of Rays right-handed starter Aneury Rodriguez, Blue Jays right-handed starter Michael McDonald, Rockies right-handed reliever Matt Daley, A’s left-handed reliever Brad Kilby, Yankees left-handed reliever Zach Kroenke and Orioles right-hander Josh Perrault. And that is far from a comprehensive list.”

so we lost Lofren (11th-MIL) in the ML phase, then Matt Meyer and Anillins Martinez in the Triple-A phase.

we took Hector Ambriz (described as overweight, 25 y.o. and still in Triple-A) in the ML phase and Brian Horwitz (OF from S.F.) in the Triple-A phase.

I must say that I did not know about the different phases of the draft. Perhaps that is the reason that Kelvin de la Cruz was protected.

Well, I’m a slightly overweight 25-year-old who wishes I was in AAA. I figure I’ve just gotta get good with a knuckleball, and I can still have a 15 year career.

AM, the minors phases are guys who aren’t on the reserve lists at A or AA, basically the minor league versions of the 40-man roster. Any decent prospect would be on reserve list at their minor league level, so the minor league portion wouldn’t have any bearing on someone like de La Cruz. Of course, since they only lost Lofgren, I can no longer argue that it was a bad idea to protect de La Cruz or anyone, it obviously worked out just fine

much appreciated info ST, thank you
