TJ surgeries relatively rare for Crew

While we await official word on right-hander Johnny Hellweg, who is seeking a second opinion on what the Brewers have diagnosed as a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow, here’s some interesting data provided by the ballclub:

Over the last 3 years, the Brewers have experienced six Tommy John surgeries (all Minor Leaguers). For reference purposes, the most for any other organization in that span is 27, and the fewest is four. The Brewers have the third-lowest number at six. The median is 15.5 and the average is 13.3.

Five clubs, including the Brewers, have not had any Tommy John surgeries for Major Leaguers. Nine other teams have had at least four Major Leaguers undergo the surgery.

Not trying to be rude, but the median is the actual number that lies in the middle of the set of numbers…how is 15.5 the median number? Did someone have half of a TJ surgery?
