Jacob Lindgren, a top draft pick who had a great 2014 in the minors (48 K in 24 2/3 IP) and who was 0-0, 5.14 in seven games with the Yanks in 2015, will need Tommy John surgery. He had elbow issues last year, and was 1-0, 2.57 in six games this year, just seven innings pitched. Expect him to miss the rest of this year and all of 2017. Don’t expect him back until 2018. Lindgren is 23. By the time he’s back, he’ll be 25 and would have missed 1/2 of 2015, almost all of 2016 and all of 2017. A tough blow for the kid.
