ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The most recent first-round draft pick of the Tampa Bay Rays has undergone surgery on his right shoulder.
Pitcher Nick Bitsko had the operation Tuesday to repair a labrum issue. Dr. David Altchek did the surgery.
The 18-year-old Bitsko was picked out of high school in Pennsylvania. He has displayed a fastball that reached just under 100 mph.
After being shut down due to shoulder soreness, he resumed a throwing program but continued to feel discomfort.
