Curtiss underwent Tommy John surgery last week, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Curtiss was diagnosed with a torn UCL in mid-August, so it's no surprise to see him undergo the surgery. Recovery from the procedure is expected to keep him out until the start of the 2023 season.
The Brewers transferred Curtiss (elbow) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday. Curtiss was diagnosed with a torn UCL in in right elbow a few days ago and is set to miss the rest of the season, so the Brewers' decision to move him to the 60-day IL is merely a formality. The right-hander has yet to decide whether to undergo Tommy John surgery to address the injury, though the procedure would seem to be a likely outcome.
Curtiss was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a torn UCL in his right elbow. Curtiss exited Tuesday's contest with elbow discomfort and is now staring down an extended absence. The 28-year-old will likely miss the rest of the season and could require Tommy John surgery, which would also sideline him for most, if not all, of the 2022 campaign.
Curtiss was removed from Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs with right elbow discomfort, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Curtiss recorded two outs and allowed a run on two hits while recording a strikeout before leaving the field with an athletic trainer. The right-hander attempted to remain in the contest but was ultimately pulled by manager Craig Counsell. He should be considered day-to-day until the specifics of the injury are known.
Curtiss was traded from the Marlins to the Brewers on Friday in exchange for Payton Henry, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. The 28-year-old righty reliever had been excellent for Miami this season, logging a 2.48 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 40 strikeouts in 40 innings. He should work in mid-leverage spots down the stretch for the Brewers.
