Tampa Bay Rays RP Jonny Venters (elbow) has suffered an injury to his ulnar collateral ligament and is currently deciding what to do next. The 31-year-old southpaw was attempting to come back from his third Tommy John surgery.
Fantasy Tip: Venters has not pitched in the majors since 2012 but had made several appearances for Class A Port Charlotte this year before receiving this news. This could mean the end of Venters' professional baseball career, if he decides not to undergo reconstructive elbow surgery for a fourth time.
