"Dr. Lintner is at the NFL combine, so we won't have anything on Hall until tomorrow," general manager Ed Wade said. I just spoke with Hall, and it's quite clear that he's bracing for a potential surgery.
Well that's not good. Obviously when a catcher has problems with his shoulder it's bad. Depending on the type of surgery needed, it's possible that Hall could be out long-term. Jorge Posada missed the second half of 2008 (and is just now 100%) following shoulder surgery.
