heard of the dreaded Tommy John procedure where the ulnar collateral ligament
is reconstructed. This procedure commonly sidelines a player for a full year if
not longer. When the stress of the throwing motion is not able to be absorbed

weakness in his or her rotator cuff or they may have mechanic issues which can
stress the elbow in unneeded ways.
