LOS ANGELES -- Here's the latest: the second doctor who examined Jose Fernandez in Miami on Tuesday confirmed the diagnosis of the first -- a "significant" tear in his ulnar collateral ligament -- and recommended Tommy John surgery.
Michael Hill, the Marlins' president of baseball operations, confirmed the news tonight. While Hill said Fernandez is still conferring with family members and that no date has been set for the surgery, or even if he'll undergo the procedure, sources say he'll likely undergo surgery within coming days. Basically, he has no other choice.
