Jensen Elliott, would-be No. 2 starter on the Oklahoma State baseball team, is done for the year.

Elliott underwent Tommy John surgery to repair his right throwing elbow, reported by the O’Colly. The recovery process for this kind of surgery typically lasts longer than a year. The surgery comes in the middle of Big 12 play. OSU is 4-8 in conference games.

Elliott started four games this season, earning a 3-0 record and 3.63 ERA. His last outing was March 12 against South Dakota State. He threw 126 pitches in six innings.

He was a Freshman All-American last season. In 17 appearances, he posted a 9-3 record with a 3.50 ERA.

    So he will likely miss a chunk of next year too, if not all of it depending on his recovery time. He’ll be lucky if he gets one full season with OSU somewhere down the line.

    Since he played very little, does he qualify for a red-shirt year??

    Why is his left wrist wrapped too?
