Blach (elbow) was released by the Orioles on Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Blach was already not going to pitch for the Orioles this season or most of the next, as he'll be recovering from Tommy John surgery, a procedure he underwent back in July. He'll now have to go through the rehab process on his own.
Blach underwent successful Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Blach experienced elbow soreness earlier in the month and ultimately opted for surgery after receiving a pair of opinions. The southpaw is set to all of the 2020 season and likely a good chunk of the 2021 campaign while recovering.
Blach (elbow) is scheduled to undergo Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports. Blach experienced elbow soreness during Thursday's summer camp workout and had two opinions on the injury over the weekend. After consultation, he'll elect to undergo Tommy John surgery, which will sideline him for the entirety of 2020 and most or all of the 2021 season as well. The southpaw was a long shot to make the Orioles' major-league roster, but he'll now have a lengthy recovery timeline ahead of him before he's healthy enough to return.
Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Sunday that Blach will receive a second opinion on his left elbow injury, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Blach complained of elbow soreness during Thursday's summer camp workout and was sent in for an examination Friday, but his initial test results were apparently inconclusive. As a result, Blach will receive another opinion in the coming days, after which the Orioles should have a better idea of how long he might be sidelined. Blach doesn't possess a spot on the 40-man roster, so he was already looking like a long shot to win a spot in the Orioles' Opening Day bullpen before the elbow injury surfaced.
Blach experienced some elbow soreness Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Blach is getting his elbow checked out Friday, which should determine the extent of the issue. The veteran lefty is part of the Orioles' 60-man player pool, but he's not on the 40-man roster, so he's not necessarily lined up to play a significant role this season.
