Tuesday March 1st, 2016

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Josh Ravin suffered a broken arm after being involved in a multi-car accident and will undergo surgery Tuesday, reports J.P Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News.

According to Dodgers public relations director Joe Jareck, Ravin was alone in his car at the time of the crash. 

Ravin, 28, played in nine games as a reliever for the Dodgers last season. Last season was his first in the majors, after playing most of his 10-season professional career in the Los Angeles and Cincinnati Reds minor league systems.

The hard-throwing righty went 2–1 with a 6.35 ERA and 12 strikeouts in nine innings pitched last season.
