Smoltz still dreaming

without comments

I love what this says about Smoltz; that even though there’s a chance he’s done, career over, he’s still rehabbing with the team. He’s not giving up; he’s still struggling to stay with the guys and maybe make another run.

John Smoltz was back with his teammates Friday afternoon, but the cumbersome brace on his surgically repaired shoulder will probably keep him out of the dugout during games for a while.

The 41-year-old pitcher had season-ending shoulder surgery June 10. Smoltz is already doing his rehab work at Turner Field, and Cox is eager to have him on the bench and on road trips as soon as he’s ready. But for now, “He’s miserable,” Cox said.

Smoltz is wearing a brace and padding to keep his arm immobilized and held out to the side. He told Cox and teammates he has been unable to sleep.
