RP - PHI - IL60
Phillies manager Joe Girardi says Seranthony Dominguez (elbow) has yet to have his Tommy John surgery.
Tommy John surgery was recommended for Dominguez back in March. However, he is having issues leaving his native Dominican Republic to return to the United States. The delay will likely keep him out through the 2021 season.
The Phillies have placed RHP Seranthony Dominguez (elbow) on the 60-day IL.
Dominguez underwent Tommy John surgery in June and will miss the 2020 campaign. The move opens a spot up for the 40-man roster. Look for RHP Hector Neris to handle closing duties for the Phillies during the shortened 60-game season.
Seranthony Dominguez has arrived in the United States to undergo Tommy John surgery.
It was recommended that Dominguez undergo the procedure back in March. However, he struggled getting back to the United States from the Dominican Republic due to the coronavirus pandemic. Still just 25 years old, Dominguez was dominant out of the pen for the Phillies in 2018. His rehab will now be pushed through the 2021 season in all likeliness.
Seranthony Dominguez (elbow) facing a decision after he was recommended Tommy John surgery by the team doctors.
Dominguez will have his elbow re-examined before making a decision on whether to elect Tommy John surgery. He dealt with elbow issues in 2019 and suffered a setback while rehabbing this offseason. If Dominguez opts for surgery, he will miss the entire 2020 season. The 25-year-old reliever can be avoided in redraft leagues, but is worth stashing in dynasty formats.
Phillies reliever Seranthony Dominguez has suffered a setback in his recovery from an elbow injury, according to a report from Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Dominguez threw just 24 2/3 innings in 2019 due to elbow issues, and there was concern at the time that he could need Tommy John surgery. There have not been any reports about surgery being back on the table at this time, but a pitcher suffering a setback several months into his recovery from elbow pain is a troubling development.
