Colton Cain, Brett Lorin, Zac Fuesser Hurt

Here we go again with another spring training. Dejan reported in the PBC blog this morning that three minor league pitchers will miss the first couple months of the season. I guess the good news is that none of them are arm-related. Colton Cain is out after "minor" back surgery. Zac Fuesser is out with a broken finger. And Brett Lorin is out after hip surgery.

All are supposed to be back by June or July, but hips and backs are not good things to have go wrong with pitchers.

UPDATE by Charlie: Kyle Stark says all of these guys will be back at full strength this summer, but even if that's true, having three guys miss a couple months of development time isn't good. Still, injuries are par for the course with young pitchers, and one of the reasons why it's good to have a lot of them--and at least none of them have arm problems.

By the way, I'm sure most of you have heard of Cain (a million-dollar draft signing late last year) and Lorin (one of the acquisitions in the Jack Wilson / Ian Snell deal). But Fuesser is a prospect too--he was signed for well above slot after being drafted in 2009.
