When Revolution right-handed reliever Ian Durham went inactive with pain in his pitching elbow on June 4, unfortunately it appeared to be a long-term injury.  On July 20, he underwent successful Tommy John surgery in his native Southern California, and judging from the photo above, is in good spirits.

While there are never any guarantees, the success rate of the surgery is generally high.  A grueling rehab does lie ahead for Durham however, and that process typically takes a calendar year.  While it’s certainly possible he could be back on a mound by the tail end of next season, most likely he’ll be back pitching by the start of the 2017 season.

In any event, we hope to see Ian back on a mound either in York or elsewhere as soon as possible following his rehab.  Durham, just 25, will be entering his sixth professional season once his comeback is complete.
