Kris Medlen Getting Second Opinion On Injury

Frank Wren announces that Kris Medlen's MRI revealed "involvement of the ligament"

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

In a press conference around 11 AM EDT this morning, Frank Wren announced that Kris Medlen's MRI revealed "involvement of the ligament." At this point, they're uncertain what this means, and they'll be looking for more information.

Needless to say though, it's not great.

They may go to Dr. James Andrews for the second opinion, since MRIs are often difficult to read after Tommy John surgery

As for any potential replacements, should Medlen not get positive news, Wren was noncommittal.

No news on Brandon Beachy either, but the team remains optimistic that no news is good news, in his case.

It would be premature to speculate what "involvement of the ligament" may mean, but we'll keep you updated as news becomes available. We're not the only ones who are worried, though.
