Tommy John, Stephen Strasburg and Matt Harvey: A ligament runs through them

So for a night, with two pitchers who endured this bizarre procedure that is now considered rote, there was a contrast. That had Collins not only evaluating whether Harvey would make his next start — “We’re going to look at that,” he said — but also using Strasburg as an example for Harvey.

“That guy that pitched tonight for them, he had a couple of mediocre years, and now he’s resurged,” Collins said. “. . . [Harvey] went above and beyond last year, and I’m not sure he’s recuperated from it.”

Tommy John on Baseball Hall of Fame: ‘I’m being held back’

“My whole thing is, if you’d looked at the pitchers of my era on the number of ground ball outs to total outs, I had the best ratio in the history of baseball,” John said. “I was very, very good at what I did, and I wasn’t a strikeout pitcher. I was when I was in high school and all that. But I wasn’t when I became a pro. So I’m being held back because I didn’t conform to some sportswriter’s idea of what is good and what is not good.”
