Kyle Gibson To Delay Tommy John Surgery, Career Six Months


Well, that's what this article should be titled. What Rhett Bollinger actually wrote was "Gibson, Slama to avoid Tommy John surgery," but I've been around too long to believe that. Slama has a muscle strain, but Gibson has a partial UCL tear, and has been put on the Pat Neshek Road To Recovery. He'll rehab until November or so, tear the UCL entirely, and then be six months behind where he would have been.
