Griffin Canning: Is now the time to consider a long-term fix for his elbow?

As Major League baseball considers a variety of proposals on how to structure their season while awaiting word from public health officials of when it might be safe to play again, players, such as Griffin Canning, who are recovering from lingering injuries, could use this opportunity to opt for a long-term fix.

We learned on Tuesday that Noah Syndergaard, the long-haired flamethrower for the Mets, has a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow and will undergo Tommy John surgery. This coming within one week of the Red Sox announcing that left-handed starter Chris Sale will go under the knife for the same injury.
