Mariners Smyly to have Tommy John, season over

Seattle Mariners pitcher Drew Smyly will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the rest of the 2017 season, the team announced Wednesday.

Dr. James Andrews is scheduled to perform an ulnar collateral reconstruction on Smyly’s left elbow on July 6 in Birmingham, Ala. Since the typical recovery time from a UCL reconstruction is 12-15 months, Smyly is likely to miss most or all of the 2018 season as well.

Smyly diagnosed with flexor strain, expected to miss six-to-eight weeks Read more here: http://www.

Left-hander Drew Smyly will open the season on the disabled list after being diagnosed with a flexor strain in his elbow. The injury surfaced Tuesday when he experienced problems in a routine between-starts bullpen workout.

Smyly, 27, is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks, and the Mariners will compensate, at least initially, by recalling left-hander Ariel Miranda from Triple-A Tacoma.

This is Smyly’s fifth trip to the disabled list since 2012. He missed much of the 2015 season because of tendinitis in his shoulder but appeared fully recovered last season when he made a career-high 30 starts.

Trupin: Drew Smyly’s arm has drowned, he’s out 6-8 weeks

If only he had pitched in meaningless Cactus League games in lieu of meaningless WBC games…

Cool cool cool. Drew Smyly was the acquisition that signaled for many a shift in the Mariners from fringy contenders to Wild Card favorites. With his return expected in June, they’ll have to rely on their considerable but lightly proven pitching depth. Ariel Miranda will get first crack in the rotation, reportedly, and will start the fourth game of the season in Houston. The choice to continue stretching him out as a starter will now come in handy, albeit sooner than anyone would have liked. According to a doctor from Rice University, flexor bundle strains are an elbow injury that develop due to overexertion over time, which makes it equally plausible that this was exacerbated by Smyly’s WBC start, or that he simply would have developed this later on regardless. It’s tough to say. On the somewhat positive side, flexor bundle strains supposedly respond well to rest and rehab. Less cheerily, a similar injury, albeit more serious, ended Adrian Sampson’s season last year, did similarly to Roenis Elias, and contributed to Homer Bailey’s struggles recently. This is trouble, pure and simple.
