Frank Herrmann was shut down early in Indians camp with elbow soreness and today the right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery that will knock him out for the entire season.

Herrmann spent much of last year at Triple-A, but was a decent middle reliever for the Indians with a 4.26 ERA and 72/29 K/BB ratio in 120 innings from 2010-2012.

If things go well he could be recovered enough to compete for a bullpen job next spring, but at age 29 his road back to the majors could be a tough one.
