"Everyday" Scott Proctor out for the season

Meant to post this earlier, but I forgot. (Life's been rather hectic lately.) This news (h/t: Charkat) probably surprises no one. Scott Proctor will be having Tommy John surgery, and is out for the season.

Proctor was the player who came to the Yanks with Bubba, in return for Robin Ventura. Everyone thought Cashman was a genius, getting both Bubba Crosby and Scott Proctor for Ventura. The scouts thought Ventura was worth either Proctor or Crosby, but not both.

As it turns out, they were probably right. Though neither player stuck with the Yankees for more than a few years, the Yanks got their money's worth. While Ventura was not the player the Dodgers had hoped for, age and injury taking their toll.

Best wishes to Scott Proctor. Hopefully he'll be back in the saddle next year.
