Jefferies will undergo Tommy John surgery, Melissa Lockard of OaklandClubhouse.com reports.

This is a tough blow for the Athletics' second pick (37th overall) in last year's draft. Jefferies allowed six runs (two earned) across seven innings (two appearances) with Stockton before landing on the DL. He'll be out for at least 12 months while recovering from the injury.
