De Leon 2nd Rays prospect to have Tommy John surgery
De Leon’s torn ulnar collateral ligament was repaired Tuesday by Dr. James Andrews, the team said Wednesday.
The 25-year-old made a pair of one-inning appearances in spring training this year, on Feb. 26 and March 3.
Right-hander Brent Honeywell, the MVP of last year’s All-Star Futures Game, was hurt pitching batting practice on Feb. 22 and tweeted on Feb. 28 that he had undergone Tommy John surgery with Andrews.
