Does anyone know what last years injury was? And if he is able to pitch this year.

He has not pitched this year, and he is not on the roster

He had right shoulder surgery (he is a righty) late last summer. It is the same shoulder he injured a couple of years ago as a member of the A's (he was traded to SD in Dec of 2014). He is not on any of the Padres minor league rosters. Not sure if he is still rehabbing or is out of the game. I grew up and played ball with his father so I'm trying find out.

Low-level minor leagues don't start until this weekend. The Padres' Class A Tri-City Dust Devils' roster only shows 12 players, so clearly, it is incomplete, but if you do a search for him on MiLB.com, he shows up as playing for them. Probably should know more about the accuracy of that in a few days.

Turns out he had surgery last season and, in fact, never pitched since coming over from the A's. He is still rehabbing and is slated for Tri-City - they are a short season single-A team - so season does not start until June. We'll see. There is backstory here which I will post when I have time.

Seth comes from a baseball family. Father was good pitcher, cousin was incredible. I played with both. Grandmother was a lunatic in the stands (in a good way for the home team!!)

When he was in 9th or 10th grade, Seth and his brother transferred high schools to our neighboring town. They had a much better baseball program. Caused a bit of an uproar, but went through. His brother was a catcher and great player himself - played at WVU and then in the Twins organization.

Anyway, the high school he transferred to had a really good team and GREAT pitcher. Seth was the 2nd man in the rotation his younger years. The coach pitched the older kid into the ground. He went to Penn State on a full ride. but had serous arm issues almost immediately and never finished his eligibility.

After seeing the handling of the older boy, I am told that when he recruited Seth that Coach Carbone made the HS coach put Seth on pitch count - to protect his arm.

He was also, I understand, well managed at Ohio. So all of this management, and he still hurts his shoulder. Shame. Hopefully he gets his arm back and can prove his talent.

Full rides in baseball are in heard of.

Then I'll assume it was "filled out" with money from other scholarship programs at PSU - as is the often the case. Do know he paid nothing - per his father who I also know - he and his wife were so psyched since they are both teachers so money is tight and they have two other children...now in college.

But good to have you comment on an ancillary piece of information that was put into the post so the reader could appreciate that the player ahead of Seth was as good, and was ruined by over-pitching - a concern OUr coach had with Seth.

Very well may have been filled out if he was a quality student, but with 11.7 scholarships and rosters are 33-40, a full scholarship is something that just doesn't happen, a stud pitcher may get 2/3rds but that's a little bit of cash that has to go a long way. We generally go with a third here.

I know of two guys in a span of 5-6 years who received full rides for baseball at Ohio. So it's not unheard of. One still transferred away and one decommitted from a SEC school.
