Stephen Strasburg sees doctor, surgery likely coming this week
Stephen Strasburg today visited Dr. Lewis Yocum, the Los Angeles-based doctor who will perform Tommy John surgery on his prized right elbow. The Nationals expect to know when Strasburg will undero the ligament-replacement surgery that will knock him out for at least a year by the end of tonight.
"Assuming that it's Tommy John, we're going to get it done as soon as possible," General Manager Mike Rizzo said. "Probably sometime this week."
Strasburg's visit with Yocum today was to be a second opinion, but it seems barely a formality and that Strasburg will receive the surgery.
