Brennan Price

As the college coaches began to matriculate down to the bullpen to observe his pre-game workout, Brennan Price wanted to give them something that would leave a lasting impression.  The 6-6 right-hander was going through his usual warmups in a bullpen on one of the auxillary fields at the Tampa Bay Rays’ practice facility in Port Charlotte, Fla.

Price was priming for his start against a team from Houston at the WWBA Underclass World Championships in early October. He was already amped and the juices only heightened as the birddogs collected behind the catcher to see what he had. 

Price reached back a little further than normal, looking to get that extra zip on his fastball. Instead, the only pop he came up with was a pitcher’s worst nightmare.

“My arm went stiff, then numb,” Price said. “I knew there was something wrong right away.”

After consultations with doctors and numerous MRIs, it was determined Price had shredded the ligament in his elbow and would require Tommy John surgery to repair the damage. The news was startling.  Read the complete MSG Varsity article here.
