Chris Archer underwent a procedure to repair a bilateral hernia today. Six weeks estimated recovery time.— Bill Brink (@BrinkPG) November 27, 2018
OK, the six week thing is good, but that’s two starters who’ll be coming off surgery when they get to spring training. I don’t see how adding a depth option is . . . uh . . . optional.
UPDATE: MLBTR has a pretty good discussion of this.
