Astros Pitcher Thankful for Surgery

Houston Astros pitcher Shane Reynolds is thankful he had season-ending surgery when he did. Otherwise, his playing days could have been over. Reynolds underwent surgery June 13th to repair a pinched nerve in his lower back and will miss the rest of this season.

He told Houston television station KRIV that his doctor told him the procedure likely saved his career. The surgery has eliminated his back problems, and Reynolds said he will be 100% by spring training -- whether it's with the Astros is yet to be seen. He will become a free agent. He was 3 - 6 with a 4.86 ERA in 13 starts this year.
