1057topper BLOG: Luke Scott Done For The Year?

You have to give Luke credit. The guy tried his very best to stay in the lineup. After a DL stint that lasted a few days past his expected removal, Luke tore it up in the minors by going 5-for-10 with three home runs. He was then activated off the DL on Friday when the Orioles opened a three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim only to find that having his right shoulder (torn labrum) at 70 percent was not good enough. Since Scott has been fighting through pain all season, it’s probably a given the shoulder only got worse as the season progressed. Luke now finds himself at a crossroad that consists of two simple options: Shut it down for three months and rehab the hell out of it, or opt for surgery and be 100 percent by next season.

The latter makes more sense to most but as Buck Showalter has stated, it’s Luke’s decision and it’s not an easy one.

What to you think he should do?
