Dodgers All-Star Walker Buehler undergoes 2nd Tommy John surgery

Aug 23, 2022

There is no good elbow surgery for an MLB pitcher to undergo, but Los Angeles Dodgers fans had to be hoping it wouldn't be another Tommy John surgery for Walker Buehler.

The Dodgers' two-time All-Star and postseason ace was announced to need season-ending elbow surgery last week, but he revealed the day of the procedure that it was indeed another UCL reconstruction (a.k.a. Tommy John surgery).

High-profile sports surgeon and Dodgers physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who did Buehler's first Tommy John surgery, performed the procedure. Buehler also underwent a flexor tendon repair, per the Dodgers.
