Keynan Middleton Headed To DL With UCL Damage

Angels reliever Keynan Middleton is going on the 10-day DL after being diagnosed with damage to his ulnar collateral ligament, as’s Maria Guardado was among those to report (Twitter links). He is headed for a second opinion.

Clearly, that’s unwelcome news for the 24-year-old righty. It’s not known at this point just how severe the damage is; it seems team and player are looking to gather information before deciding upon a course of treatment. In the most serious cases, of course, UCL injuries require extensive surgery that can require upwards of a year of rehab.
