I was laying in bed last night, ready to go to sleep, when I got a text message from Twin #2's girlfriend. It said something to the effect of "Another Twins injury. Big loss." I was worried--my thoughts went from Francisco Liriano to Joe Mauer to Carl Pavano. I knew none of those guys had had any injury notes of late, save Mauer's normal wear and tear from catching, but still.
I responded, asking what had happened to whom, only to get the answer: "Clay Condrey. Season-ending surgery."
So that's it for Condrey. He was signed in the off-season, and was billed as a good acquisition. Unfortunately the Twins will pay him his $900,000 salary without getting a single Major League pitch from him. Perhaps he'll get another shot next year, but that seems unlikely at this point.
