It's time for your daily dose of Baltimore Orioles news and notes. In today's edition, we play a little catch up from this past weekend's Orioles' events and talk about another prospect having Tommy John surgery and Chris Parmelee electing for free agency.
RHP Branden Kline has Tommy John
In playing catch up from the weekend, some may have missed the news that another O's pitching prospect had Tommy John surgery in RHP Branden Kline.
Kline is just the latest O's prospect to have the surgery, and almost certainly won't be the last.
Kline was showing some promise in the O's system, and even went 3-3 with a 3.66 ERA in eight starts this season with the AA Bowie Baysox, before being shutdown with elbow discomfort.
We all should have seen the surgery coming as he had a platelet-rich plasma injection in late May to try and alleviate the elbow discomfort, but eventually needed the surgery anyway.
The surgery, performed by Dr. James Andrews, was done last Thursday. We wish Kline well, and hope for a speedy recovery for the 24-year old.
