Tommy John Surgery Suggested for Carlos Rodon

Published

on

Former NC State All-American Pitcher Carlos Rodon has been put on the Injured List due to elbow inflammation, and Tommy John Surgery is one of the options “on the table”, and has been “suggested.”

Obviously they are going to get a second opinion, but news is expected this week on what the path forward will be.

Rodon is obviously not pleased with the possibility, already going under the knife for shoulder surgery back in 2017.

“If it’s Tommy John, so be it,” he said.

“It’s super-frustrating,” Rodon said. “It’s something that was not in anyone’s control; it’s no one’s fault. Things like this happen. Second time now something like this happens; there’s not much you can do. You just have to roll with it.’’

“It’s just been tight over the whole season, but nothing really like yesterday,” Rodon said. “Yesterday kind of got me a little bit. It didn’t really loosen up like it normally does.’’

The possible reason for the elbow inflammation could be the Tommy John Twist seen in the picture below.

Rodon pitched well through his first 5 starts this year, but was shelled in his final two starts, ballooning his ERA.

If Rodon in fact has to undergo Tommy John Surgery, he would miss the remainder of the 2019 season, and a chunk of 2020.

Torin Dorn Participates in Agent Pro Day in Phoenix

Published

Former NC State Forward Torin Dorn worked out at an Agent Pro Day in Phoenix today in front of NBA Scouts and executives, along with two other former Wolfpacker’s: Cody and Caleb Martin (Transferred to Nevada).

Dorn impressed at the Portsmouth Invitational a month ago.

I would be shocked to see Dorn drafted, but workouts like these could help him get an invite to the NBA Summer League or get a G-League contract.

Dorn has always defied the odds, as he so perfectly laid out in the tweet below accompanied by a highlight reel.

Josh Jones Wants Packers to Trade Him

Published

on

Former NC State Safety Josh Jones wants to be traded from the Packers according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.

According to Demovsky, Jones is skipping voluntary OTA’s, and working out on his own in Florida.

I’m guessing Jones didn’t appreciate Green Bay drafting Safety Darnell Savage in the 1st Round a month ago, with the 21st overall pick.

Obviously Jones would like to be traded to a team where he can start, but there are plenty of other Safeties on the market.

Jones was drafted by the Packers with the 61st overall pick, in the 2nd Round of the 2017 NFL Draft, after leaving NC State after his Junior year.

For the past 4 years, Wilson has served as a pro/college scout, but recently was promoted to Director of Pro Scouting.

After playing three seasons at NC State, Wilson was drafted in the third round by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2001 NFL draft

Wilson played 12 seasons for the Cardinals, and is in their Ring of Honor, and was on the Hall of Fame ballot last year for the first time, and I made the case last year that he deserves to join the club one day.
