“Going into PRP I had no idea what to expect! I was told about this injection which takes your blood and sends it in a centrifuge and takes the plasma and platelets and separates the rest. The injection itself was kind of painful but something that of course can be tolerated. Well after I was cleared to do movements I started rehab with my athletic trainer. I started throwing not soon after, not going to lie I was very hesitant about throwing after the injection. I was really nervous, but at the same time I was very confident. The reason is I knew it would help me to get back to the field. So I finally got on the mound and started throwing a couple bullpens, felt good!!!
After a couple of starts my velocity finally started to come back. My arm was finally getting into shape. Throughout the season I had no problem with it. Each start it felt great! I was throwing each ball with conviction! After the season was over I was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals!”
