Jarrod Parker will undergo TJ Surgery

Postby Grounded Polo » Fri Oct 23, 2009 8:48 am

The Arizona Diamondbacks' top pitching prospect, Jarrod Parker, will undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow next week.

The D-backs officially announced their 2007 first-round pick will have the surgery, performed by Dr. James Andrews, on Wednesday, Oct. 28. On the one hand, there's some apprehension from the young right-hander. On the other, he's looking forward to getting his elbow permanently repaired.


Full Story

Parker was clearly a top 25 prospect by everyone's opinion and was looking like he would certainly be a top 10 prospect at some point in 2010. Now who knows but terrible news for Arizona.

He's got enough talent to bounce back as quickly as Josh Johnson did.
