Angels reliever Middleton facing Tommy John surgery

May 18 2018 4:50 AM

Los Angeles Angels reliever Keynan Middleton will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair the ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow.

Middleton, 23, underwent an MRI exam on Monday following Sunday's game against the Minnesota Twins after only 12 pitches because of what manager Mike Scioscia described as right elbow discomfort.

The right-hander came off the DL last Thursday and pitched scoreless innings that day and Saturday.

He has six saves in 16 appearances with a 2.04 ERA and 16 strikeouts over 17.2 innings.

In Middleton's previous stint on the DL, Cam Bedrosian and Jim Johnson recorded saves for the Angels but it was Justin Anderson closing out Monday's win.
