Pat Neshek Player Profile

Who is that one Twin who throws really funny? That's Pat Neshek! Pat Neshek grew up in Madison Wisconsin. Neshek began his career for the Twins in 2006. In 2007, MLB had no idea what it had coming as Neshek took the league by storm. He was so good that he almost made the All Star Team. Neshek finished the seasonwith a 7-2 win-loss record appearing in 74 games for a total of 70.1 innings pitched and a 2.94 ERA. Neshek ended his season September 20th of that season due to elbow tenderness. Neshek tore is UCL three innings into the 2008 season. On November 11, 2008, it was announced that he would undergo ligament replacement surgery, more commonly known as Tommy John surgery, and miss the 2009 season. Neshek is back for the 2010 season, but he has not been that effective or used very much. It's said that it takes two years for players to regain their form after TJ surgery so look for him to be spectacular in 2011. GO PAT!!!
