Yesterday, the Philadelphia Phillies announced they've recommended Tommy-John Surgery for their No. 1 prospect, Andrew Painter. Andrew Painter is a 20 year-old starting pitcher, he's highly talented.

The Philadelphia Phillies were expecting Andrew Painter to be apart of the starting rotation this year. This injury happened in spring training, a Ulnar Collateral Ligament (UCL) injury.

Andrew Painter will see Dr. Neal ElAttrache on Monday in LA. If Dr: Neal ElAttrache conjurs with the Philadelphia Phillie doctors, which he's most likely going to, Painter will have the Tommy-John Surgery next Wednesday.

This is obviously a huge loss for the Philadelphia Phillies. As mentioned above, Painter would've been involved in the rotation this year. He will miss all of 2024, and the earliest he'll be back is 2025. Painter will be 22 then. The only thing the Phillies front office, and fans can hope for, is that his recovery goes smoothe and is back at full strength.
