Andrew Painter to undergo Tommy John surgery

The Phillies’ team doctors have recommended that Andrew Painter undergo Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Impact

Painter will likely undergo Tommy John surgery after meeting with a specialist early next week. The 20-year-old right hander was diagnosed with a partially torn UCL in March and was focused on rehabbing to avoid surgery. Unfortunately a setback in early July resulted in further testing that showed Painter required surgery. He is expected to be out until at least late 2024 and possible early 2025, based on normal Tommy John surgery timeframes.

Andrew Painter undergoing tests on right elbow

Andrew Painter is set to undergo testing on his right elbow after experiencing stiffness in the elbow earlier in the week.

Fantasy Impact

Phillies’ manager Rob Thomson did not reveal what type of testing Painter was undergoing. The 20-year-old did throw a bullpen session Wednesday but is not recovering the way the team anticipated from a partially torn UCL. It is possible that Tommy John surgery could be in play depending on the results of Painter’s tests.

Andrew Painter diagnosed with right UCL sprain

Andrew Painter diagnosed with a UCL sprain in his right elbow.

Fantasy Impact

After a week of waiting, the Phillies have announced that Painter has a sprained UCL in his pitching elbow. The highly-touted prospect received opinions from a couple of doctors and will now rest for at least the next four weeks before beginning to throw again. Bailey Falter appears to have the inside track for the fifth spot in the Phillies' rotation due to this development regarding Painter.
