The Chicago White Sox didn’t get the most out of Ryan Burr, unfortunately. He was up and down with injuries over the last few years and never pitched to his full potential when he was in MLB. Unfortunately, the situation seems to be a bit worse than anyone thought.
Burr shared some powerful words on his Instagram on Friday afternoon. He talked about his injury and how it hurt him all season long. He went out there and gave it his all while dealing with what sounds like some pretty bad pain.
The hardest thing to read here was that it seems that he feels betrayed by the White Sox as they released him right before having this surgery. He said that it was tough to face a hard surgery like this without the support of the team that he hurt himself playing for.
He did thank his teammates and all of that but it doesn’t sound like Burr is too fond of the White Sox organization right now. This is a bad look for them. This is a team that has been brutal this year and the front office and management are to blame.
The White Sox weren’t there for Ryan Burr when he needed them the most.
Having this come out in a year like this is just the worst possible thing for them. Burr did make it known that he is not done playing baseball. This is a very tough surgery that he has to heal from now but he fully plans on being back on the field soon enough.
Honestly, it is fair for White Sox fans to root for this guy. He was a soldier that hurt his shoulder so bad trying to be a difference-maker. He probably should not have been pitching through the pain but he wanted to be there for his team so bad.
Instead of being there for him, the White Sox let him go. They could have easily put him on the 60-Day IL with no issues whatsoever. There would have been no harm in seeing what he can do post-surgery but the White Sox have to do what they do best which is disappoint people. Hopefully, he comes back one day healthy and ready to go.
