Ah, maaaaan. Reds fans heard the worst possible news about Ryan Madson’s elbow check-up on Saturday. A visit to Cincinnati and examination by team medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek revealed that Madson’s elbow ligament had torn off the bone, requiring season-ending Tommy John surgery.
Can we get a collective OH EM GEE?
The Reds will go on, we’ll go on and all fans must go on. While it’s a huge disappointment, at least the Reds are still in spring training and they have a short bit of time to get guys slotted into new roles before the season starts. It’s still going to be a fun one, folks!
