Yankees' Prospect Gleyber Torres To Undergo Tommy John Surgery

Jun 20, 2017 7:45 AM

New York Yankees prospect Gleyber Torres has a torn ligament in his non-throwing elbow and will miss the remainder of the season.

Torres will undergo Tommy John surgery on his left elbow but is expected to recover in time for spring training in 2018. The infielder was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow.

"It is unfortunate," Brian Cashman said. "I'm thankful that it is a correctable problem."

Had he not been injured, Torres might have been called up by the Yankees at midseason.

Dustin Pedroia Sent To Hospital After HBP

Jun 19, 2017 7:27 AM

Dustin Pedroia was taken to a nearby hospital after he was hit in the back by a pitch in Sunday night's game between the Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros.

Pedroia had X-rays on his rib area.

"The pitch hit in the left lat area, left rib cage. It continued to swell and tighten up," John Farrell said. "He was losing a lot of range of motion with the left arm, so we had to get him off his feet. We'll have a better read once he goes through the exam here at the local hospital."

Pedroia was the second batter hit by Astros pitcher James Hoyt in the seventh inning. When Pedroia departed, Josh Rutledge moved from third base to second and Pablo Sandoval entered the contest at third.

Shoulder Pain May End Bronson Arroyo's Career

Jun 18, 2017 6:51 PM

Bronson Arroyo says his career might be at "checkmate" because of pain in his right throwing shoulder.

The 40-year-old Arroyo lasted just three innings against the Dodgers on Sunday, allowing five earned runs on seven hits in the Reds' 8-7 loss. He also allowed his major league-leading 23rd home run (off the bat of the Dodgers' Logan Forsythe). Arroyo got a no-decision Sunday but is 3-5 with a 7.35 ERA in 14 starts.

He is pitching in the majors this season for the first time since 2014, coming back from Tommy John surgery more than two years ago.

O's Lose Chris Davis For Three Weeks

Jun 17, 2017 7:30 PM

Sidelined with a right oblique strain, Chris Davis can't seem to get comfortable lying down or sitting in a chair.

So it will likely be after the All-Star break before the Baltimore Orioles first baseman is ready to swing a bat in a big league game again.

"I think three weeks would be real ambitious," manager Buck Showalter said Saturday. "I'd sign up for that right now."
