Yimi Garcia has Tommy John surgery, 2017 season in jeopardy

Pitcher Yimi Garcia underwent Tommy John surgery October 25 in Arizona. The right-hander missed most of the 2016 season due to injuries, and might miss all of 2017 if he needs the typical 12 to 18 months to recover.

Garcia made nine appearances  last season and finished with a 3.24 ERA after compiling a 3.34 ERA in 59 appearances in 2015.

Garcia, 26, did not pitch  for the Dodgers after experiencing numbness in his right biceps on April 22 in Colorado.
