S.D. Jonathan Hernandez, right-hander of the Petersburg-Texas Rangers team in Florida, USA, underwent reconstructive surgery for his right elbow tendon.
Another Rangers reliever, Jose Leclerg, performed the operation within two weeks of going to the operating room for the same procedure.
Similarly, Texas Bullback will be without fastball expert Matt Bush until at least July.
Joe Daniels, head of Rangers athletic operations, said Dr. Keith Meister was responsible for performing Tommy John surgery on Hernandez. He added that the operation went according to plan.
Both Hernandez and Leklerk will be knocked out at least until the start of the 2022 season.Mester Leklerk said the surgery took place on March 31st.
Bush has a flexible traction in his right arm and will receive a needle this Tuesday.
The 24-year-old Hernandez stood alone in the 2020 campaign, shrinking to 60 games due to infection, scoring 5 appearances and 2.90 eras in 27 games. He took 31 runs and walked eight in 31 innings.
It sinks at an average speed of 98 mph. But before he could decide on surgery after an MRI a week ago, he was out with a pre-sprained tendon.
