Tommy John to Have Miguel Sano Surgery

Tommy John’s worst fears came true this weekend.

The highly-retired former pitcher has a tear in his U.S. work visa and will need Miguel Sano surgery. John will fly to the Dominican Republic this week to undergo a study of his bones in order to determine his true age.

John was injured while walking to an AARP meeting.

It’s a bummer for canasta fans who can’t wait for John to return to his place at the table in between two other 70-year-old former athletes.
