SI.com (Jaffe): Jose Fernandez’s Tommy John tale takes an unsettling turn

I think Jaffe’s thesis here (Fernandez self-sabotaged and may have potentially destroyed his career) is rather overstated, but still…has pitching hurt ever worked out well for anyone except Sandy Koufax and Curt Schilling?

The loss of Jose Fernandez to Tommy John surgery blindsided the baseball world, robbing the game of a brilliant young star, at least temporarily. But just as the 21-year-old ace threatened to recede into the bleak landscape of this year’s wave of injuries, things have taken a turn for the weird. First came a rare statement from a lawyer on his surgery outlining the timeline of Fernandez’s demise. Then, in his first round of media availability since the surgery, Fernandez himself contradicted that statement, shining a light into the current epidemic’s darker corners while showing unusual loyalty to a team that has rarely merited it.

To appreciate how strange things have gotten, it’s worth reviewing the events of the past two weeks…
