White Sox's Michael Kopech: Recommended for Tommy John surgery
Kopech has a UCL tear and has been recommended for Tommy John surgery, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
While his top-end velocity hadn't quite been up to his usual levels in his past few starts, this still comes out of nowhere and is obviously devastating news for Kopech and the White Sox. Kopech is now facing the likelihood of missing all of 2019. The team released a statement confirming the report but said that Kopech will receive a second opinion before any decisions are made regarding surgery.
