WASHINGTON -- Stephen Strasburg has a torn elbow ligament and will likely have Tommy John surgery, bringing the pitcher's promising rookie season to an abrupt end.

Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said Friday an MRI on the right elbow revealed a "significant tear."

Strasburg will travel to the West Coast for a second opinion, but Rizzo anticipates the 22-year-old right-hander will need the operation that requires 12 to 18 months of rehabilitation.

really sucks for this kid. started to become a phenom and then down and out with surgery. one wonders if he'll be the same. at least he didn't go out like lincecum and just started to eventually suck... :angry:

hopefully lincecum is just in a funk though

Man what a bummer all of the hype coming in and he lived up to it now he's having a very rough surgery for pitchers. I doubt he will be the same

I had a feeling something like this was gonna happen to this kid. It just seemed like he was surrounded by enormous hyped & thrown into the fire.

^ Some of that hype & fire was on him as well though hiring an agent like Scott Boras setting a tone from the get-go.
