Rays pitching prospect Brent Honeywell tears UCL, likely to undergo Tommy John surgery
The Tampa Bay Rays have reported that top pitching prospect Brent Honeywell will need Tommy John surgery due to a torn ligament in his elbow. Honeywell was diagnosed with a torn UCL Friday morning. Health officials say it can take up to two years to fully recover from Tommy John surgery. He will miss the entire 2018 season and likely most of 2019 as well.
A startling comeback on the final day of the regular season (Sept. 28) carried the Tampa Bay Rays back to the playoffs.
