Shohei Ohtani Should Have Tommy John Surgery NOW

Late last week it was announced that Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani would be heading to the DL with a Grade 2 sprain of the UCL. In the days since, there have been many conflicting reports on whether or not Ohtani will need the dreaded Tommy John surgery, how long he will be on the shelf, and in what capacity he could return in. 

Ben Maller thinks that the Angels shouldn't waste any time and just have Ohtani go through with Tommy John surgery. Maller points out that with these types of injuries, the Tommy John procedure is inevitable, so it would be best to just get it out of the way now and begin the rehab process.
