TCU’s Mitchell Traver finally having success after three seasons of setbacks

  In his eight starts, Traver is an impressive 5-0 with a 0.99 ERA and 43 strikeouts.

Coming out of high school in 2012, right handed-starter Mitchell Traver was a highly recruited prospect. Decorated with accolades Traver signed with TCU hoping to continue his successes at the next level.

These dreams however had to be put on hold. In the summer of 2012, Traver was diagnosed with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome: a very serious condition that can cause the compression of various nerves in the upper body leading to serious pain to the neck, arms, shoulders and hands. The injury is caused by repetitive stress applied to an area on the human body, such as the consistent torque that wears on an arm or shoulder after firing fastballs to home plate. Due to the severity of this injury, Traver had a rib removed to help with blood flow in his shoulders. But the treatment did not stop there. Traver, due to the pain in his elbow, would be required to have Tommy John surgery sidelining him for the upcoming season. Already injured before throwing out his first pitch in college, Traver stayed surprisingly positive with the aid of his strong faith.
