(SportsNetwork.com) – Pitching awaiting Brady Aiken, a tip altogether preference in a 2014 draft, underwent Tommy John medicine on Wednesday.
Aiken was comparison No. 1 altogether by a Houston Astros, though a dual sides
could not determine on a agreement before a mandated deadline, so giving Aiken
another possibility to enter a draft.
Houston, that had concerns of Aiken’s bend during a traffic process,
reduced a strange offer of $6.5 million down to $3.1 million before making
one final bid with a $5 million understanding that Aiken declined.
“Yesterday, we had Tommy John medicine to repair my left arm,” Aiken wrote on The
Players’ Tribune website on Thursday. “I’m apparently intensely disappointed. I
wanted to let my pitching pronounce for itself, though now there are going to be new
distractions. For that reason, we wanted to be a one to tell people what’s
happened and make this a uninformed start.”
Aiken was pitching during a IMG Academy final week when a damage first
occurred. He attended a academy rather than a four-year college so he can
sojourn authorised for a 2015 draft, and he is deliberate to once again be a
clever choice early in a initial round.
