Dodgers Top Prospect Expected to Miss 2024 Season With Injury

This is a major blow to the Dodgers farm system.

The Dodgers' top pitching prospect Nick Frasso will likely miss the entire 2024 season after having surgery to repair a tear in his right labrum. He underwent the surgery in November, and the typical recovery time for this injury is between 8-12 months.

Dr. Neal ElAttrache was the one who performed the surgery, and the Dodgers are hopeful that Frasso will be able to make a full recovery. Dodgers general manager Brandon Gomes said that there is a chance he can return at the end of the season.

Frasso was expected to make his major league debut at some point this season, but now rehab will become his daily routine. The hope is that he can bounce back stronger than ever to continue what is seen as a promising career. 

Last season he split his time between Double-A and Triple-A. He looked good while with Triple-A despite only making four appearances. Frasso put up an ERA of 3.26 during his time, making it more likely he would be called up to the big league squad this season.

He has pitched 152 innings during his career in the minors, posting an ERA of 2.96. Frasso was traded to the Dodgers from the Toronto Blue Jays in 2022 in exchange for pitcher Mitch White.

We all wish Frasso a speedy recovery and hope to see him on the mound again very soon!
