Tommy John Surgery
Dr. Frank Jobe, who pioneered the elbow procedure that became known as Tommy John surgery and saved the careers of countless pitchers, was remembered Monday as a gifted and caring surgeon with a sense of humor.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have announced that Dr. Frank Jobe, a legendary figure in the world of sports, has died Thursday morning in Santa Monica at the age of 88.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed starter Chad Billingsley to the 60-Day disabled list with an injured right elbow.
In what may be the biggest blow of the season for the Dodgers, rookie sensation Rubby De La Rosa has a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing elbow and will undergo Tommy John surgery.
