Padres' Colin Rea: Ops for PRP injection over TJ surgery
After meeting with Dr. James Andrews, Rea has opted to get a PRP injection Thursday and forgo Tommy John surgery for now, the San Diego Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin reports.
It was previously reported that Rea was slated for Tommy John surgery, but he will try to pursue alternate means of getting back on the mound. After receiving the PRP injection in his elbow, Rea will rest for three-to-four weeks before beginning a throwing program, so he is still slated to miss the rest of the 2016 season. This will be a situation to follow into the offseason, as Rea could still end up needing Tommy John surgery, but he was going to end up missing all of the 2017 season regardless of whether he had surgery now or in three or four months.
