George Sherrill is out for the year for Mariners
We're hearing this morning from Eric Wedge that Seattle Mariners left hander bullpen guy George Sherrill will have surgery on elbow in early May and is "more than likely" done for the season.
Per Geoff Baker of the Seattletimes
Mariners manager Eric Wedge said this morning that "there's a lot going on" in the elbow and the timeframe for any recovery won't be completely known until doctors get inside for a look. But Wedge says it's "more than likely" Sherrill won't be back in uniform this year.
For now, the Mariners will stick with Charlie Furbush and Lucas Luetke for left-handed relief.
We now know per Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times that left-handed relief pitcher George Sherrill would undergo Tommy John ligament transplant surgery on his left elbow.
Such surgeries typically take nine months to a year to recover from, meaning Sherrill, 35, might not be ready for the start of next season either. Sherrill was signed to a one-year, $1.3 million contract back in January after struggling through an injury-shortened 2011 season with the Atlanta Braves
