Athletics pitcher Cotton to miss 2018 season with torn elbow

MESA, Ariz. (AP) Oakland Athletics pitcher Jharel Cotton will undergo season-ending surgery on his right elbow.

Cotton had been diagnosed with a sprain and had a second scan taken on his elbow on Friday, then was told he would need Tommy John surgery. The procedure is expected to take place next week.

"It's tough. I'm missing the 2018 season with my boys, so it's kind of hard to take. I'm trying to take it as best as I can and just get ready for the long process, the long road that's ahead," Cotton said Saturday morning at A's spring training.
