It was announced on Wednesday afternoon that an MRI revealed new damage to Shohei Ohtani's UCL and that he would now need to undergo Tommy John surgery. Ben Maller predicted that this was inevitable months ago and thinks that the Angels severely mishandled Ohtani.
Maller goes on to say that when the possibility of Tommy John is mentioned, that you should always go ahead and just do the surgery right away. You are only delaying the inevitable. What the Angels really needed from Ohtani is to be a front of the rotation ace, and now he'll be out till 2020.
