Injury Update On Red Sox' Promising Starting Pitcher

He underwent surgery in September.

Boston Red Sox' pitcher Garrett Whitlock is already at work in spring training camp, doing weight training and running sprints on Tuesday.

Whitlock arrived early to camp in Fort Myers, Florida and looks to be fully recovered from his late-Septemeber arthroscopic surgery on his right hip.

Barring any setbacks, Whitlock is expected to open the 2023 season in the Red Sox' starting rotation.

The Red Sox started working the twenty-six-year-old up to be a starting pitcher last season and it went well. Over his first two seasons in the majors, Whitlock has been very impressive, recording a 2.73 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 163 strikeouts over 151.2 innings of work. He's made nine starts, 68 relief appearances and converted eight saves.

It will be very intriguing to see what the talented young pitcher can do with a full-time starting role this season.

Whitlock is a former 18th-round pick by the New York Yankees in the 2017 MLB Draft.
