Follow up tweet to Dutton: I told him to take a bucket of water with him the next time he was talking to Glass, because his pants were on fire.
Anyway... re: Tommy John and the Royals
1) Duffy's recovery is APPARENTLY going as well as these can go. Best case is getting back in 12-13 months. That would put him back in June, if all continues to go so well.
2) Paulino's, haven't heard much about it. July/August make sense for him.
3) John Lamb threw last year in extended ST, but his recovery was set back by leg injuries (non-related). He likely starts this season at AA. If he puts things together quickly and has good success, a September call-up might be in the cards.
Lamb has always been my favorite of the Duffy/Montgomery/Lamb trio. I think he'll be a little bit better than Duffy, ultimately.
