Orioles starting pitcher Kyle Bradish out for the season with Tommy John Surgery


Baltimore Orioles right handed starting pitcher Kyle Bradish of Peoria, Arizona is out for the rest of the 2024 Major League Baseball season and a significant part of the 2025 Major League Baseball regular season after having Tommy John Surgery on Wednesday.

How did Bradish get injured?

Bradish injured his ulnar collateral ligament on Friday, June 14 in a 5-3 Orioles loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. He actually was quite effective in the contest, as he only gave up two earned runs in five innings of work. However, both earned runs Bradish gave up were home runs as designated hitter Kyle Schwarber of Middletown, Ohio hit a leadoff home run in the first inning, and catcher Rafael Marchan of San Cristobal, Venezuela hit a solo dinger in the fifth inning. For Marchan it was his first hit of the entire season. He then had four hits (all singles) in a 9-2 Phillies win over the San Diego Padres on Monday.
