Mariners' Anderson Hurt Again
Mar. 13, 2002
PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) _ Seattle Mariners prospect Ryan Anderson, who missed all of last season following shoulder surgery, may have hurt his left shoulder again.
Anderson had an MRI exam Wednesday, and the Mariners said he had a torn labrum, which is part of the shoulder joint. Seattle physician Dr. Larry Pedegana, will review the test and determine the next step for the left-hander.
The 6-foot-10 Anderson, a first-round draft pick in 1997, had surgery on March 6 last year. He has thrown on the side in workouts this spring, but not in a game because of soreness in his shoulder.
In 2000, Anderson was 5-8 in 20 starts at Triple-A Tacoma, striking out 146 batters in 104 innings.
He was placed on the disabled list July 26, 2000, with a strained left shoulder, and pitched only two more innings the rest of that season.
