September 19, 2008

The news that Jays fans had been dreading became official today, righthander Shaun Marcum will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the 2009 season. Marcum left Tuesdays game vs the Orioles with tightness in his forearm and numbness in his shoulder which lead to a trip to the famous Dr. James Andrews.

The loss of Marcum will now put more pressure on the Jays to retain AJ Burnett beyond the end of this season.
