Shelby Miller has already undergone Operation Tommy John

The D-backs opener, Shelby Miller, underwent a successful Tommy John surgery, which was performed by specialist Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles.

“Everything was great and it’s already resting,” said Arizona rider Torey Lovullo.
Miller suffered a tear in a right elbow ligament on April 23. After getting three different opinions, Miller decided to undergo the procedure instead of a rehabilitation process.

Miller is expected to be out of action for the next 15 months.
