INJURY: Wander Javier Out For Season With Labrum Tear
Minnesota Twins promising young shortstop prospect Wander Javier will miss the remainder of the 2018 season following a labrum tear in his left (non-throwing) shoulder, according to MiLB.com. Javier will undergo surgery, with a recovery timetable of approximately 12 months. This is a terrible break for a kid who reached several Top-100 prospect lists as a 19-year-old. Javier’s injury will cut into some of his development time next year as well. Thankfully, he is still young and has the potential to make a full recovery from the injury.
