Chris Withrow will undergo Tommy John surgery Tuesday in Pensacola, Florida.

The surgery will be performed by Dr. James Andrews. The team announced last Thursday that Withrow was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow, so Tommy John surgery was considered an inevitability. The 25-year-old owns a 2.73 ERA and 71 strikeouts over his first 56 innings in the majors, but he'll now be sidelined until around midseason in 2015.
Jun 3 - 8:26 AM

Dodgers placed RHP Chris Withrow on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 21, with a torn ulnar collateral ligament.

Withrow was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque last week, but he never reported to the team and the option has been rescinded after an MRI revealed a UCL tear. He'll undergo a second opinion, but Tommy John surgery is surely inevitable.

Chris Withrow has been diagnosed with a torn UCL in his elbow and will likely need Tommy John surgery.

Withrow hadn't pitched in eight days at Triple-A Albuquerque -- an indication that something was up. If he undergoes Tommy John surgery, the 25-year-old right-hander will be sidelined through the middle of 2015. He had a 2.95 ERA in 20 appearances with the Dodgers before they sent him to the minors on May 21.

Chris Withrow hasn't pitched in eight days due to an undisclosed injury.

Withrow was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on May 21 but has yet to make an appearance there. "There's some stuff going on. I don't know what they're willing to release at this point," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday. "I know medical is getting to the point where they'll release something." We'll have an answer soon.
