MLB 49 43 Tommy John success stories 30928507 Philip Humber Philip+Humber MLB

Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Phil Humber entered the league with the New York Mets. A first-round pick out of Rice in 2004, Humber had Tommy John surgery in 2005. After bouncing around the league for a few seasons, Humber settled down with the Chicago White Sox. The righty enjoyed what is sure to be the highlight of his career on April 21, 2012, when he threw a perfect game against the Seattle Mariners.

It's too early to tell what the long-term prognosis is going to be for the Nats phenom, but since undergoing Tommy John surgery, Strasburg is every bit as impressive as the 2010 rookie version that wowed the baseball world. The right-hander's velocity and control are intact.
