Matt Harrison fears Tuesday 'might have been my last game'
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/14) Rangers left-hander Matt Harrison is facing a career decision and the prospect that spinal fusion surgery could mean he's pitched his final major league game.
The alternative of a rest-and-rehabilitation program might be unrealistic, so he is willing to undergo the operation. But the downside is an overwhelming consideration.
"I"m trying to wrap my head around what's going on and trying to let it sink (in) that it might have been my last game," Harrison told the Dallas Morning News about the Tuesday outing from which his back problem forced his removal. "I'd give every dollar back just to be the way I was in 2012. It's tough to swallow the way things have gone."
Harrison landed a five-year, $55 million contract on the basis of his 18-win performance that season. He has made just six starts since.
Matt Harrison remains confident about pitching again
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/14) Rangers pitcher Matt Harrison, who is suffering from a displacement of a vertebra in his back, made it clear that even if he has spinal fusion surgery he's going to try and pitch again, FOX Sports Southwest reports. The procedure could be career-ending.
"Obviously your health is most important but I know there's guys that have come back before. Not every one of them had been able to play again," Harrison said, per MLB.com. "I'm gonna give that a shot if I end up having to get the surgery. But if I come back and things are the same or worse than they were before, then it's obviously not worth the risk because I'd end up damaging more of my spine and end up having more serious surgeries from that point on so it's really not worth me being 29 years old and not being able to walk."
Harrison is scheduled to have an injection Friday in an attempt to alleviate the symptoms before considering other options.
