Am I right in thinking the rehab for position players who have to have Tommy John is much shorter than for pitchers? If Crawford has the surgery immediately after the season, when would he be likely to come back?

Positional players are able to get back much quicker than pitchers but he still might miss the beginning of the 2013 season. Eight months would seem to be a reasonable expectation for his return.

Heard anything about Luis Perez? He began the 7th inning for Toronto yesterday and left after giving up two hits, due to some sort of elbow discomfort. The Jays put him on the 15-day DL later that day.

I haven't heard any update yet but it didn't look good. Should find out more tonight or tomorrow.

"Hanley Ramirez received stitches in his right hand after punching a fan on Sunday. He’s expected to return on Friday".
When I read that line, my first thought was that you buried the lead - what kind of jackass player would punch a fan? I now just found out that what he punched was an *electric* fan.
Specificity of punched object is not always necessary, but when the object is a synonym for something that would altogether change the way I read the sentence, well, it makes sense.

Of course you brought this up exactly when I was writing my comment.

Point taken. If he punched a human fan, it would probably be more interesting.

"Hanley Ramirez received stitches in his right hand after punching a fan on Sunday."

Upon reading this my first reaction was, "Why did he punch someone?" Then I remembered it was a cooling fan. How many injuries are there each year from players punching random objects? I'd assume they'd know better by now.
