OAKLAND, Calif. - Oakland A's right-handed pitcher Jarrod Parker underwent successful right elbow surgery, the club announced today.
The surgery was performed this afternoon by Dr. James Andrews at the Andrews Institute in Gulf Breeze, Fla. Parker's previous revised ulnar collateral ligament did not need repairing and the avulsed medial epicondyle fracture was cleaned up and repaired. Parker is currently resting comfortably.
Parker underwent "Tommy John" surgery for the second time in his career March 24, 2014. He began a rehab assignment with Single-A Stockton April 23 and made two starts with the Ports and two at Triple-A Nashville before injuring his elbow with the Sounds May 8 against Round Rock. Parker combined for a 2-1 record and a 5.79 ERA in his four rehab starts.
