Former Duluth Huskies’ pitcher Drew Smyly will undergo Tommy John surgery tomorrow and will miss the rest of the 2017 season.

The current Seattle Mariners’ starter has a torn UCL and will visit Dr. James Andrews for the surgery. Smyly is expected to miss anywhere from 12-15 months, most likely sidelining him for most of the 2018 season as well.

Since entering the majors, Smyly has pitched for the Detroit Tigers, Tampa Bay Rays and now Seattle Mariners, who he has yet to throw a pitch for yet. He has a career record of 31-27 with a 3.74 ERA.

Smyly pitched in Duluth as the ace during the 2009 season and made seven starts under manager Terry Collins. He struck out 44 batters with a 3.32 ERA.

The entire Duluth Huskies organization and family wish Drew a quick and successful recovery.
