Cory Luebke’s Incredible Comeback

There was a time when Cory Luebke seemed to be on the cusp of stardom. That was back in 2011, when he was still a member of the San Diego Padres. The following season, he pitched just 31 innings before falling down a rabbit hole of injury. He has re-emerged this spring, and today we received word that he made the Pirates’ Opening Day roster. That has to feel pretty spectacular...

MLB Free Agency: Indians interested in lefty Cory Luebke

There is no such thing as too much pitching. There is no such thing as too much pitching. That is a suggested saying for any Major League Baseball team heading into any offseason. Injuries can happen and bullpens can be unreliable. That is part of why you’ve seen reliever contracts skyrocketing and spring training invites already happening this winter. Here’s one more name you...

The Cool Kids go for Three Tommy Johns

Last week we found out Cory Luebke was set to have his second Tommy John surgery, ending his 2014 season. We grieved, we cursed, and now we’ve moved on (shhh . . . just repeat it . . . it’ll make things easier). I went over the best and worst case scenarios for Luebke in last week’s post. The success rate for a pitcher coming back after a second TJ surgery is 60 percent, and...

Padres LHP Luebke to have another surgery

The San Diego Padres say left-hander Cory Luebke will need a second reconstructive elbow surgery and will miss the 2014 season. Luebke missed all of last season while rehabbing after having his first surgery in May 2012. An MRI exam last week showed a tear in the ulnar collateral ligament. He is 10-12 with a 3.25 ERA in parts of three seasons. Luebke signed a $12 million, four...

Padres' Cory Luebke needs another Tommy John surgery

Some analysts view the San Diego Padres as a sleeper contender for the 2014 season. One of the reasons for that is a pitching staff that could feature five to six quality starters and a bullpen that goes four to five arms deep. However, that depth will now take a hit with the news that left-hander Cory Luebke needs another Tommy John surgery and will miss the entire season. ...

Padres’ Cory Luebke To Miss 2014 Season Due To UCL Tear In Elbow

  San Diego Padres left-hander Cory Luebke received some very disparaging news on Tuesday: he’ll miss the entire 2014 season after doctors discovered an ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) tear in his left elbow. This is particularly rough news for Luebke and the Padres because the 28-year-old already dealt with one Tommy John operation in May 2012. That one and its subsequent rehabilitation...

Tears for Luebke; Tears for Fans

Man, this one hurts. Earlier this evening, Padres beat writer Corey Brock tweeted that Cory Luebke would undergo his second Tommy John surgery, ending his 2014 season. Ugh. What a gut-punch to a team that had such a productive (on-field) off-season. And poor Cory Luebke. As Mel from The Sac Bunt tweeted , I don’t know who or what to be mad at. There’s nothing you can blame for...

Cory Luebke Out For 2014. (Insert Expletive).

According to the ever-reliable Corey Brock, Cory Luebke is going to miss the entire 2014 season and may require a second Tommy John surgery. Pardon us, but… I guess there’s not much else to say, other than get well Cory and we’ll hopefully see you in 2015.
