Stark: Tommy John Surgery ‘epidemic’?

we’ve already seen 14 major league pitchers undergo Tommy John surgery just this year. And two others are scheduled to have surgery next week: Yankees starter Ivan Nova and Rangers reliever Pedro Figueroa.

And this is happening in a sport that averaged fewer than 16 of those surgeries per year between 2000 and 2011.

Grover Alexander used to rub horse lineament on his arm.
