Chris Withrow will have Tommy John surgery tomorrow.

Dodgers pitcher Chris Withrow will have Tommy John surgery Tuesday in Florida. The surgery will be performed by Dr. James Andrews.

The team announced last Thursday that Withrow has a tear in the ulnar collateral ligament of his right elbow. Team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache made the diagnosis May 23, two days after Withrow was optioned to the minor leagues. Withrow didn’t pitch after that.

Twenty major-leaguers and another 22 minor-leaguers, including Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling, are known to have had the surgery since the beginning of spring training.
