DODGERS PITCHER WALKER BUEHLER DONE FOR THE YEAR; SCHEDULED TO UNDERGO SEASON-ENDING SURGERY
Buehler was officially sidelined for the rest of the Dodgers’ 2022 season on Aug. 15 — a huge blow to the trending team. News of his likely sidelining for the entirety of 2023 only threw salt on the wound.
He posted a selfie on his personal Instagram account: anticipating the second Tommy John surgery of his career Tuesday afternoon.
As previously reported on OutKick, “Since suffering a Grade 2 flexor strain to his pitching elbow in May, Buehler has been shut down and on a throwing program with the Dodgers for the last month. In 65 innings pitched this season, Buehler has posted a 4.02 ERA and 21.2 percent strikeout rate (a career low).”
