His biggest moment was throwing a no-hitter in the minor leagues two years ago. However, he has suffered a set back and will miss the rest of this season.

Drabek will have Tommy John surgery, thus ending his season and affecting the start of next season. He was placed on a 15-day disabled list last week with a tear in his ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

He visited surgeon Dr. James Andrews, who confirmed that Drabek will have his second Tommy John surgery in his career. Drabek will have the surgery today in Pensacola, Florida.

He had Tommy John surgery in 2007 when he was a member of the Lakewood Blueclaws within the Philadelphia Phillies system.

He was pitching in his 13th game this season when the injury happened. He had a 4-7 record with a 4.67 ERA.

Last season, he made his major league debut and had a high ERA at 6.06.
