Pitcher Jordan Schafer Elects Elbow Surgery

LEFT-HANDER WILL HAVE PROCEDURE THIS COMING FRIDAY, MARCH 17

 JUPITER, Fla., March 14, 2017 – St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Jordan Schafer underwent an MRI exam of his left elbow yesterday (March 13) afternoon, and after a review by the team’s medical team, and after speaking with Cardinals’ Sr. Vice President/General Manager John Mozeliak, he has decided that surgery intervention is his best course of action.

Schafer, 30, a non-roster invitee to the Cardinals Spring Training camp, is scheduled to have surgery this coming Friday, March 17, at which time Dr. George Paletta will determine if the injury requires a ligament repair or a complete reconstruction.
