TMZ releases brief pre-beating Bryan Stow video


TMZ has obtained a 15-second clip of Bryan Stow in Dodger Stadium before the beating that left the Giants fan in a coma.

In the video, Stow, wearing a Giants jersey, is having some sort of dispute with a Dodgers fan.  The fan in question is not Giovanni Ramirez, the suspect from the beating currently behind bars on a probation violation.  Ramirez has said he wasn’t at Dodger Stadium at the time of the attack.

To see the clip, head over to TMZ here.

According to the report, the LAPD is looking to obtain the original video as part of its investigation.

Stow, 42, is believed to have been beaten by two men in the parking lot after the April 5 game between the Giants and Dodgers.  He remains in a medically induced coma nearly three months later.

David Phelps to undergo Tommy John surgery

Pitcher David Phelps has a torn UCL and will undergo Tommy John surgery, ending his 2018 season, the Mariners announced on Wednesday. Phelps was making brief one-inning stints in the Cactus League as he worked his way back from a procedure to remove a bone spur from his elbow last September. He said he felt the ligament tear on his final pitch against the Angels in his March 17 appearance.

Phelps, 31, was expected to set up for closer Edwin Diaz. The right-hander, between the Marlins and Mariners last season, posted a 3.40 ERA with a 62/26 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings. He and the Mariners avoided arbitration in January, agreeing on a $5.55 million salary for the 2018 campaign. Phelps will become eligible to become a free agent at the end of the season.

As the Mariners noted in their statement, the expected recovery period for Tommy John surgery is 12-15 months, so this very likely cuts into Phelps’ 2019 season as well.
