What is the deal with our minor league pitchers getting hurt. This is a seriously disturbing trend.

Virtually all of their decent pitching prospects have dealt with injuries in the last year.

Fernando Nieve, Troy Patton last year
Bud Norris, Brad James, Felipe Paulino, Sergio Perez this year. I'm sure I'm missing a couple as well.

It does seem quite prevalent, goastros. Also, Jack Cassel has missed a few starts with back issues,Mark McClemore has missed this whole season, and Tip Fairchild at Corpus this year, missed all of 2007 with Tommy John surgery. I don't know how this compare with other franchises.
