at the time of the injury, it didn't seem that serious.
dice is famous for keeping the team in the dark when he's hurt.
with lackey back, aceves will go back to the 'pen...
so assuming he's pitched his last game for us, here are his stats --
49 wins, 30 losses, 105 games started, 622 2/3 innings pitched (a little under 6 innings per start),
, 1 complete game, 569 hits allowed (64 dingers), 301 walks, 568 K's.
$51,111,111.11 posting fee.
$52,000,000.00 (6 year) contract.
he never lived up to the hype that preceded his arrival from japan.
for the most part, he pitched like a back-of-the-rotation starter.
he had the annoying habit of loading the bases with no outs and somehow escaping with minimal damage.
after surgery, he should be able to resume his career.
but i wonder if a team would be willing to take a chance on him...
