Miami Marlins top prospect, right hander Max Meyer, will undergo Tommy John surgery, which will be performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles on a date that has not yet been determined, according to an official team announcement.

Meyer, who was the 3rd overall pick in the 2020 draft,  is one of the top prospects in baseball. Meyer, 23, faced three batters and threw only 10 pitches before being removed in the first inning of his start last Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Meyer underwent an MRI on Monday which revealed the injury and the decision to have the surgery was made after consulting with a number of doctors.

Meyer finishes the season with an 0-1 record and a 7.50 ERA during six innings pitched.
