Tigers’ Miner facing season-ending elbow surgery

The Detroit Tigers say reliever Zach Miner will undergo season-ending surgery Friday to reconstruct a ligament in his right elbow. The Tigers say the 27-year-old consulted with orthopedic surgeon Dr. Lewis Yocum, who'll perform the surgery in Los Angeles. The team says rehabilitation typically takes 9-12 months. Miner was diagnosed two weeks ago with a partial ligament tear. He'd been having elbow problems since spring training. Miner was 7-5 last season with a 4.29 ERA.
