Wheeler is having Tommy John surgery after being diagnosed with a fully torn ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his pitching elbow. He will miss the entire season.
We had been forewarned by the doctor that his elbow was a concern and it was going to have to be managed over the course of this season. It wasn’t clear that the ligament was involved at that time, but we understood we were going to have to manage his elbow condition over the course of the season. So when he complained of the elbow pain, it wasn’t a surprise to us…We’re still digesting the injury to Zack and really have not started to address that issue.

I’ve made that same cut hundreds of thousands of times in my life. I felt the initial pop, and I think you guys could tell on the replay, I looked back, and it feels like someone kicked you. I was praying that someone was back there. No one was back there, and I heard Ron [Garretson], the ref, he actually says, ‘Oh no’ like he knew…I’m frustrated, man. I’m frustrated. They say everything happens for a reason, and I was thinking it, too. But what was the reason? I can’t find it right now.

Looks like he might miss some time, but we’ll know the extent of it tomorrow.

You get ticked off when the best player in the league gets hit like that. I can’t totally comment because I didn’t fully see it. You never want to see that.

I knew before Shawn wasn’t feeling great and that’s the reason he wasn’t playing, because he wasn’t healthy. So we really wanted to give him a chance to get through this problem as we have done on several occasions this year with other players. And I think it’s good. It’s good that he’ll take this time to rest and rehabilitate and get the treatment that he needs and to come back when he’s fully ready to play.
