The Failings of Jeff Karsten’s Body
Jeff Karstens is a lot of things. He’s a soft tosser with excellent command, possessor of the finest pitch face this side of RA Dickey, and owner of my dreams. He is also, sadly, incredibly injury prone, only once throwing more than 122 innings in a season.
Hell, when the Pirates non-tendered him (before recently re-signing him), Neal Huntington said:
“He’s doing everything he can to get the best out of his abilities. Unfortunately at times, his body lets him down, and it’s been various body parts.”
If you were curious what those bodily failings were, you now have your answer.
