Dodgers reliever Chris Withrow undergoes surgery for herniated disk in back

1 Comment

Dodgers reliever Chris Withrow already had Tommy John surgery on his right elbow back in June and now Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that he required surgery last week for a herniated disk in his back.

Withrow will need three months of recovery time, but it’s not expected to delay his return to the majors. Either way, he’s not likely to be a factor until around midseason next year.

Withrow turns 26 in April and owns a 2.73 ERA with 71 strikeouts over his first 56 innings in the majors.
