Ohtani 'probably' needs TJ surgery, may miss all of 2019

Mon Jun 11, 2018 10:08 am

According to a report from ESPN's Pedro Gomez, Ohtani will "probably need Tommy John surgery" in the wake of his recent elbow injury. Ohtani was placed on the disabled list with a Grade 2 ulnar collateral ligament sprain last week. Here is a transcript of Gomez's video report:

"The Angels are holding out hope that (Ohtani won't need surgery), but everything I'm hearing is that the reality is he probably will need Tommy John surgery. They're trying to hold out because they're in the middle of a season, they're kind of competitive right now, he is their best pitcher. But, it doesn't look good at this point."


Losing him for any stretch of time is a big blow. Tommy John surgery could mean losing him until 2020.

It would be interesting to see how they manage his return. Do you let him hit six months before he's ready to pitch? There's really no precedent.
