Wada Requires Tommy John Surgery

Orioles left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada requires Tommy John surgery, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweets. The Japanese starter has yet to appear in a game for the Orioles, who signed him to a two-year, $8.15MM contract this offseason.

Wada posted a 1.51 ERA with 8.2 K/9 and 1.9 BB/9 in 184 2/3 innings for the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks in 2011, but has been sidelined so far this year. The Orioles have a 2014 club option for Wada, who's now 31.

Jeeeeesus! A post listing all of the players who have had Tommy John in the past 12 months would be cool. There are just too many to count now.

I thought in this age of medicine and health awareness, players would be stronger. Instead, nobody can even approach 300 innings anymore, and the list of Tommy John surgeries is almost endless. Bring back the days of Whitey Ford and Early Wynn. Drink hard on Friday night, throw 10 innings on Saturday.
