According to Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com, Phillies left-hander Mario Hollands underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery on Wednesday. The procedure was called a success, as most athletic procedures are in the hours after they’re completed.
Hollands is going to miss the entire 2015 season and the first month or two of the 2016 campaign as well.
The 26-year-old southpaw posted a 4.40 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and 35/21 K/BB ratio in 47 innings of relief last season as a rookie. Holland began experiencing elbow problems toward the end of spring training this year in Florida.
