We’ve learned from Brian Wilson himself that the plan was borrowing a ligament from Sasquatch and the hit song from the Night Shift soundtrack:
Surgery was perfect. Borrowed ligament from my ol’ pal Sasquatch. Only side effects: hairy arm and I talk like a wookie bit.ly/JHg9lF

Brian Wilson – putting a whole new meaning to the old baseball adage, “put some hair on it.”
Tommy John typically requires 12-14 months for a full recovery, but Wilson has never really adhered to societal norms. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s back much sooner and throwing 125 with the flick of the wrist without a leg kick … from second base, because pitching from the mound would no longer be fair.
