Tommy John Surgery Newsbeat
Monday, May 06, 2013
Wish you were here…..
Chicago White Sox right-hander Gavin Floyd could be sidelined through the 2014 season after the team announced Monday he will undergo surgery to repair the ulnar collateral ligament and a torn flexor muscle in his right arm.
Floyd will undergo surgery Tuesday by Dr. David Altchek at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. The expected time of recovery for Floyd, 30, is from 14 to 19 months.
Floyd suffered the injury while delivering a pitch April 27 against Tampa. The team originally announced that Floyd suffered a muscle strain, but second and third opinions revealed the injury was more severe.

To be consistent, I’m sure the sportswriters will refer to the Medical Wing of the Hall of Fame:
Dr. Frank Jobe, who developed the elbow procedure known as “Tommy John surgery” that has helped baseball players extend their careers, will be honored during Hall of Fame induction weekend on July 27.
Tommy John will attend the ceremony to help honor Jobe for his impact on the sport. John was diagnosed with a ruptured MCL in his left elbow in 1974 when Jobe tried a procedure in which he removed a tendon from John’s forearm and repaired his elbow.
for his generous support.
