Rangers reliever Matt Bush has undergone an “arthroscopic acromioclavicular joint resection.” That’s shoulder surgery to you and me. The surgery was performed by Dr. Andrews, to whom Bush paid a visit. As one does to Dr. Andrews. Bush is expected to be ready for spring training.

After returning to baseball following years in the wilderness — and time in prison — Bush was fantastic for the Rangers in 2016. He took a step back in 2017, though, posting a 3.78 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 58/19 in 52.1 innings. His K rate was up but his walk rate and hit rate were too, basically.

The Rangers are obviously hoping that a resected, AC joint will whip back into 2016 form.
