Jeff Walters has been diagnosed with a torn UCL.

That's the injury that pretty much always leads to Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. Walters had a rough 8.86 ERA over his first 21 1/3 innings this season at Triple-A Las Vegas. The 26-year-old will likely be out of commission through the middle of 2015.
