DateQuestionAnswer
2008-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wikipedia's list of position players who have had Tommy John surgery: Rocco Baldelli, Joe Borchard, Shin-Soo Choo, Chris Denorfia, Rusty Greer, Luis Gonzalez, Matt Holliday, Norris Hopper, Cezar Izturis, Kelly Johnson, Xavier Nady, and Vance Wilson. Also, Jose Canseco could be included but doesn't really count since he blew out his arm while pitching.
(Gump from nyc)
Jimmy Wales is a great guy, but .... man, that's a really incomplete list. (Will Carroll)
