On Thursday morning, the Boston Red Sox account announced left-handed relief pitcher, Robby Scott, underwent a successful left elbow arthroscopy and debridement the day before.
This came as a surprise to most due to the fact that there was no word of injury at all, until this point. President of Baseball Operations, Dave Dombrowski did not seem to shed any indication of the surgery during a press conference Wednesday.
Dombrowski was asked yesterday if anyone was going for surgery. He, unsurprisingly, did not mention the guy getting operated on that day. https://t.co/qDkU3FrWPk
