Giants lose RHP Beede to Tommy John surgery

MLB

SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco Giants right-hander Tyler Beede will undergo Tommy John elbow surgery Friday.

Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi made the announcement Thursday. Beede’s surgery will be performed by Texas Rangers physician Dr. Keith Meister in the Dallas area.

Beede joined others having medical procedures, some because of the delay to the season caused by the coronavirus. The Red Sox announced Thursday that left-hander Chris Sale will have Tommy John surgery. Houston’s Justin Verlander underwent groin surgery.

Beede left an exhibition game after one inning on March 3 with tightness in his elbow, and an MRI exam the following day showed he had a flexor strain and a UCL sprain. The club gathered additional opinions on the injury before Meister determined surgery the best decision.

Beede had been competing for a spot in San Francisco’s rotation. He went 5-10 with a 5.08 ERA last season for the Giants.
