Westbrook done for the year
Don’t have any details right now regarding surgery or anything of that nature. We’re going to speak with head trainer Lonnie Soloff in about 20 minutes. But for now I can tell you that Jake Westbrook’s season is over with that right elbow injury.
I’ll have more up on the site in the next hour or so.
UPDATE (2:46 p.m.): Soloff confirms that Westbrook will have Tommy John surgery performed by Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles in the next seven to 14 days. The optimistic hope is that he’ll be pitching in the big leagues again in the next 10-14 months. For more info, check out the site in a little bit.
