Tightness?

According to an mlb.com article, Rondell White recently discovered that the Doctor that performed his most recent shoulder surgery this off-season stitched up his shoulder a bit tighter than before because of how often it was popping out.  Apparently, his shoulder has felt sore, and therefore slow, and that has been the culprit in his swing.  He is headed to a Doctor for a second opinion on where to go from here.

I wonder how much there is to this.  I wonder if a> the slight change in the operation actually has caused part or all of his struggles (or if the tightness is caused but repeated injuries combined with simple decline in ability and age), if B> there is anything that can be done about it, and c> if that thing to be done would leave him out for an extended period of time, as well as d> if he would really get all that better.

I'm not so sure if this isn't White really discovering something that may be wrong with himself or if this is being promoted by the Twins to boost his perceived value.  I suppose we'll find out in a week when Shannon Stewart gets back.  Presumably, he'll be released when that happens.

If it is the case that the tightness actually has been the culprit, it really stinks for the Twins, getting screwed by such a fluke occurrence and all.  To this point this year, we would be significantly better of had White simply been hurt in the off-season than had he been fixed-up-poorly/collapsed-in-ability.

What do you think?  Chance for regeneration, or hoax for a PTBNL chance?
