One of the elite high school pitching prospects in the nation, Jesus Luzardo (Parkland, Fla.) has been sidelined with a UCL injury, and an MRI shows that the ligament likely has a tear. If this is confirmed by Dr. James Andrews in an upcoming appointment where he will seek a second opinion, Luzardo will likely undergo Tommy John surgery. The 6-foot-1, 205 pound lefthander was already one of the very best prep arms in the class, and was building even further momentum in early outings this spring in front of scouts.
