Nine Injury Ward is "Disaster Zone."

The Flagstaff Arrows (YS9‘s AAA affiliate) announced today that 26-year-old semi-prospect Tyler Corless (7/5/7 Talents)’s season is over as a result of a rotator cuff strain. While the right handed starter will undergo further MRI testing tomorrow, the team doesn’t think it’s a tear.

“We expect Tyler to make a full recovery,” said Mike Burns, the team’s physician.

In the meantime, he joins young lefties Tim Oliver (10/7/5 Talents) (shoulder inflammation), Eduardo Reyes (6/6/7 Talents) (ligament reconstruction), and Jose Valenzuela (8/7/5 Talents) (torn labrum), and right hander Javier Sanchez (8/5/8 Talents) (partially torn UCL) on the team’s minor league disabled list with long-term disabilities. It’s a worrisome series of events, especially given the team’s fairly recent difficulties with their major league staff.

“We’re built off our pitching,” said coach Robert LaLoosh. “So I pay a lot of attention to the kids up and down the organization. I have conference calls with all the coaches once a week, and we’re constantly talking about pitch counts and workloads. It’s a tough situation, really. Kids get hurt you know?”

Yes, they do.

At 26 years old, Corless had thrown 137 innings so far this season. He threw 166 last season, the most of his career. It doesn’t appear that overall workload is the culprit here. He had, however, thrown a touch over 100 pitches in each of his last 9 outings, winning five games and losing four. Until this season, his injury history was crystal clear.

Dumb luck?

Just a few too many pitches when tired?

No one is sure, of course. All we can say with certainty is that five of the team’s pitching prospects are sitting on the long term DL. If the parent club wasn’t winning, we’re wondering if some heads would be rolling.
