NatsLady hipped me to this: Nationals reliever Drew Storen had surgery on the hamate bone on (in? of?) his left (non-throwing) hand today. Which sounds serious, but since he doesn’t swing a bat and since it’s his non-throwing hand will not keep him out of action for long. Indeed, he could be throwing again in three days.
Storen is coming off an excellent season in which he posted an ERA of 1.12 and a K/BB ratio of 46/11 in 56.1 innings. He should be ready for Opening Day.
