Anyway, it seems you're the doctor (and I don't even play one on TV!)
It depends. Most people are good at 6 months, but not always. And it always depends on what's actually damaged in his shoulder joint. He could have a small tear, easy to fix. Or a big, degenerative tear which is hard to repair (i.e. no tissue left to put sutures in).
But shoulder's generally do recover faster than ACL's.
If you're in a keeper league, and can get him for cheap, I would still do it.
