Atlanta Braves Pitcher Gets Tommy John Surgery

Huascar Ynoa's 2022 season is over, as the 24-year-old has elected to have Tommy John surgery.

Given the estimated recovery time that comes from this surgery, it is likely that he will not be able to pitch in 2023, either. Therefore, this development is certainly a rough one, but it also seems to have been a necessary decision from Ynoa. He has been dealing with injury trouble and had a setback during his recent rehab assignment.

The recovery ahead for Ynoa is a very long one, but given his young age, we should see him back in the majors later down the road. That is the case whether he sticks with the Braves or ends up finding a new home elsewhere. 

In 31 career games, Ynoa has a 4-8 record to go along with a 5.22 ERA.
