In other news, Brett Marshall is set to have Tommy John Surgery. It’s too bad to see another promising pitching prospect going under the knife, as the Yankees as an organization must lead the world in Tommy John surgeries. Marshall’s struggles this season could be explained by his elbow, and with surgery, rest, and rehab, hopefully he can become the pitcher the Yankees envisioned when they drafted him.
