Indians right-hander Ambriz to have surgery
Indians right-hander Hector Ambriz will have Tommy John surgery
Ambriz has not pitched since Sept. 8, when he worked a
season-high 3 1-3 innings in a 16-inning loss to the Los Angeles
Angels in Anaheim. He will undergo reconstructive surgery on the
ulnar collateral ligament by Dr. Lewis Yocum in Anaheim.
Ambriz went 0-2 with a 5.59 ERA in 34 relief appearances. He
opened the season on the disabled list with a sore elbow and made
his major league debut April 30, pitching one scoreless inning
against the Minnesota Twins.
The Indians selected the 26-year-old from the Arizona
Diamondbacks in the 2009 Rule 5 Draft.
