In Memoriam: The Tommy John Victims of 2014

As much as we wanted to end the year on the positive note, we decided to take a somber look back at the many arms we lost to Tommy John in 2014. We hope that many of these guys will make it back in 2015 or later, and knowing the surgery’s success rate, there’s a good chance that will be the case. However, the epidemic of UCL tears at the beginning of the year will be always be a defining factor of the 2014 season. Even losing these young arms for a year is tough to watch, and we don’t really know if they’ll ever be the same.

We wish all of these pitchers the best of luck with their lengthy, tiresome rehab process. Especially you, Jose. Please come back soon.
