The Oakland Athletics announced that on Tuesday, May 19, Dr. James Andrews will perform right elbow surgery on A's right-handed pitcher Jarrod Parker to repair a medial epicondylar fracture. The good news Parker announced on his twitter account is that it appears the injury he suffered on May 8 did not affect the graft from his second Tommy John surgery:
Got the best of the bad news... Just a break that'll be fixed tomorrow! #11Believes— Jarrod Parker (@JarrodBParker) May 18, 2015
The development means the A's do not expect Parker to require a third Tommy John surgery, tweets the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser. There's a decent chance he could recover from it and return late this season.
