Red Sox's Carson Smith to undergo Tommy John surgery. Can he make a comeback after the 2016 season? | The Tylt
Red Sox pitcher Carson Smith's 2016 season is already over! Smith is undergoing Tommy John surgery on Tuesday to repair his ulnar collateral ligament. The surgery will not only end the 2016 season, but he'll be recovering for part of the 2017 season.
Will Smith make a comeback after he recovers?
Some fans are worried about Smith missing almost the whole season. They aren't sure if he can make a comeback after so long on the bench. Others are hopeful for his return, especially considering he has until 2021 before he becomes a free agent again - plenty of time to recover.

Very sad to hear Carson Smith will be getting tommy john surgery. Hope he heals up nicely. Ridiculously fun pitcher when he's healthy.— Ethan Novak (@EthanNovak) May 24, 2016
Carson Smith will still have just two-plus years of service time after this season. Boston could still get three-plus seasons from him.— Brian MacPherson (@brianmacp) May 24, 2016
