Sox Pitcher Carson Smith’s Temper Cost Him The Rest Of The Season

Published

It looks like Carson Smith’s Temper got the best of him after all, according to several news reports. Smith will undergo surgery for the shoulder subluxation he inflicted on himself when he threw his glove in the dugout after a particularly bad outing against the Oakland Athletics on May 14.

Things started to look bad when news began to leak out that Smith had seen one doctor, but was seeking a second opinion on the injury.

John Tomase of WEEI Sports Radio Network had the chance to speak to Red Sox physical trainer Brad Pearson, who was able to shine some light on the injuries Smith sustained when he threw his glove.

“Carson had a subluxation of his right shoulder. Anytime you have subluxation, which is what we found when we did our physical exam and the MRI, you’re going to want to evaluate the structures in the shoulder. We found some suspicion to the labrum and the capsule, anterior and stability issue. So what’s going to happen is they’re going to go in and look at all of the structures and fix all the things that they feel necessary in order to add stability back to that shoulder so that he can handle the rigors of pitching and throwing.”
