Report: RHP Max Kranick Underwent Tommy John Surgery; Ending Season



Max Kranick- Pittsburgh Pirates

According to Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, Pirates right-handed pitcher Max Kranick has just undergone Tommy John Surgery. As we all know, Tommy John surgery takes an extremely long time for recovery, and for Kranick, he will likely miss next season as well to recover fully.

Kranick has seen a pretty severe uptick in velocity, hitting 99 mph at times, and has been between Pittsburgh and Indianapolis for a few years now. Kranick has appeared in two games in 2022 for the Pirates and has pitched five scoreless innings walking three and striking out four in the process.

In Triple-A Indianapolis, Kranick has appeared in three games (starting two), has allowed two earned runs, walked two, and struck out four in 6.2 innings pitched. Kranick has indeed suffered a tough blow and setback in his quest to return to Pittsburgh permanently, but he now has all the makings of a cool redemption story.
