Blue Jays reliever Ken Giles underwent Tommy John surgery on Wednesday.
The surgery was a success. Giles, who is going to be a free agent this winter, will likely miss the entire 2021 campaign.
Ken Giles (forearm) announced Monday in a post on his personal Instagram account that he will undergo Tommy John surgery.
Giles has been dealing with a flexor strain and will undergo Tommy John surgery to correct the issue. He will most likely miss the entire 2021 campaign. Giles finishes 2020 with one save along with a 9.82 ERA, 2.18 WHIP and six strikeouts over three 2/3 innings. The right-hander will be a free agent next offseason.
Ken Giles was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a right forearm injury.
Giles recently returned from the injured list last Friday and made just two appearances before re-injuring his forearm. He underwent an MRI, but the results are unknown at this time. Giles' season is most likely over.
Ken Giles allowed a solo homer and two hits while striking out two in one inning of work in his return from the injured list Friday against the Mets.
Giles (forearm) was activated from the 45-day injured list Friday and will probably need a couple of appearances to get back to normal. The 29-year-old reliever is the closer for the Blue Jays and should be owned in all leagues that count saves as a category.
Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo says Ken Giles (forearm) won't close games immediately upon his return.
However, it sounds as if all Giles will need is one low-leverage inning. He threw a bullpen on Tuesday and is expected to be back sometime this weekend.
