Tommy John surgery 'was inevitable' early in process, catcher Matt Wieters says
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Catcher Matt Wieters said Wednesday that it seemed inevitable that he would need season-ending elbow surgery shortly after he resumed throwing less than three weeks ago. He also said it was important to undergo the procedure immediately in order to have the best chance of being ready for Opening Day next season.
