NEW YORK (AP) Yankees right-hander Sergio Santos is going to have season-ending Tommy John surgery, and left-hander Jacob Lindgren is set to have a bone spur removed from his elbow.

The Yankees made the announcement about Santos on Sunday, two days after the oft-injured reliever was placed on the disabled list with elbow inflammation.

Lindgren, taken in the second round in the 2014 draft and made his big league debut May 25, was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on June 13. The Yankees tweeted that the rehab and recovery period should be no more than 12 weeks.
