Tommy John surgery for Riske
Bad news on the David Riske front. The right-handed required full-blown Tommy John surgery to repair the ligament in his right elbow, a procedure that typically requires 9-12 months of rehabilitation. That means Riske’s 2009 season is over, and he could miss the start of 2010.
Riske has one year left on a three-year, $13 million contract.
