Travis Swaggerty Has Season-Ending Surgery

Pittsburgh Pirates Director of Sports Medicine Todd Tomczyk gave updates on a few Pirates prospects on Thursday to the local media. The big news is that outfielder Travis Swaggerty had shoulder surgery and it will take about five months for a full recovery. That timeline means that he is done for the regular season and also the Arizona Fall League, assuming that league has a normal schedule in 2021 after not operating last year.

The other update was regarding Jose Soriano, who is returning from Tommy John surgery. He’s dealing with elbow discomfort, which isn’t a good sign.
