Medlen: A case of total disregard to a young pitchers health


I might be alone, but I can't help but to think that Medlen has been totally abused by the Atlanta Braves this season. The kid has done a stellar job in the first 170 innings of his MLB career and all he got in recognition is to get absolutely mishandled, for the greater glory of the Bobby Cox fair well tour. The way they have jerked this guy from pen to rotation and back and forth multiple times is criminal. I know he isn't held in as high esteem as Tommy Hanson, but he did a wonderful job of holding his own and to show their appreciation the Braves made it a habit to jerk this kid around. Was there going to be any other result then a major injury. Maybe my reaction is wrong, I'm no pitching coach. But it's the way I feel, how bout you.
