Another day and another 2012 first rounder goes down. Yesterday, it was reported that Lucas Giolito is set to undergo Tommy John surgery. Today, we learn that Kyle Zimmer will be out for 6-8 weeks after surgery to remove loose bodies in his elbow.
Moore said Zimmer’s elbow shows no sign of ligament damage. That’s no small thing for an organization that lost four major-league pitchers this season to ligament-reconstruction surgery – a procedure commonly known as Tommy John surgery.
“There were loose bodies,” Moore said, “but they were in a real good place (if you have to have them). His shoulder and his (elbow) ligament are in top form based on all of the scans.”
