Tommy John Surgery
Baker, 31, is coming off Tommy John surgery in 2011 that forced him to miss the entire 2012 season.
The Chicago Cubs chances in the National League Central Division just became a little better. The St. Louis Cardinals’ ace pitcher Adam Wainwright will officially undergo Tommy John surgery.
The St. Louis Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright injured his throwing elbow and is returning to St. Louis to have it examined by team doctors. The former 20-game winner could miss the season if Tommy John surgery is needed.
