Braves' Vizcaino Out For Season After Elbow Surgery

"Worst fears were realized when Braves reliever Arodys Vizcaino's visit to Dr. James Andrews ended with the right-hander undergoing "Tommy John" elbow surgery Tuesday that will sidelined him for the entire 2012 season.

Vizcaino, rated the No. 40 prospect in baseball and top relief pitching prospect for 2012 by Baseball America, faces a 12-month rehabilitation.

The 21-year-old Dominican reinjured the ulnar collateral ligament that he partially tore as a minor leaguer in 2010, an injury that was allowed to heal without surgery at that time.

He hadn't had any recurrence until this spring, when he was shut down after pitching in the March 3 Grapefruit League opener."
