MIAMI, FL: Atlanta ace Spencer Strider underwent season-ending elbow surgery and was fitted with a brace to repair the ulnar collateral ligament on Friday, per Bob Nightengale of USA Today.


Strider has been sidelined for quite some time with the elbow injury and today gives the Braves their set decision regarding the ace. Strider just adds to the laundry list of pitchers who have been shut down with injuries.


Luckily for Strider and the Braves, Strider will miss his second Tommy John surgery as he prepares for rehab on an internal brace surgery. However, for Strider, this marks the second major surgery he’s had of his young career. In 2019 Strider underwent Tommy John surgery while pitching at Clemson.

The Braves ace was pitched just 9.0 innings where he compiled an ERA of 7.00. Strider and the Braves will now have to go through the rest of the 2024 season without each other. The Braves have the depth to cover Strider’s production, however, Strider’s production is not going to be easy to replicate.
