Ty Hensley Likely To Miss 2013

Back in February I was lucky enough to speak with Ty Hensley over the phone. I wanted to ask questions that haven't already been answered by Ty during other interviews, and therefore we talked about his chances of playing college football, his very athletic brother, playing video games, along with a few other things. Looking back I wish I asked more, but I was happy to get through the few questions I did without sounding like a total fool.

One of the things we didn't talk about was his shoulder "abnormality", which cost Hensley $400,000 in signing bonus money (he was originally set to be signed for $1.6 million, but after the Yankees found the "abnormality" that bonus was knocked down to $1.2 million). So when I heard that Tyler would likely miss all of 2013 due to injury, I assumed his shoulder was the problem. That wasn't the case though, but unfortunately the real issue isn't much better.

Chad Jennings reported that, according to VP of Baseball Operations Mark Newman, Ty Hensley had surgery on his hip to repair labrum damage. And when Newman was asked about Hensley's target return date, he answered "Spring Training".

I am still, and forever will be, grateful that Ty took the time to speak with me. He's an incredible person, and we here at The Greedy Pinstripes wish him the best.
