Daniel Gossett met with the media Saturday three days after surgery to repair the ulnar collateral ligament in his right arm and he said that one of the first people he spoke to post-surgery was fellow starter Kendall Graveman – who’d had the same surgery the same week.
“Kendall called me right after surgery,” Gossett said. “He just wanted to check on me, I really appreciated that. And his wife (Victoria) called my wife (Presley) to make sure she was doing OK, too.”
Gossett, 25 initially was diagnosed with a flexor-tendon strain and when he resumed throwing after rest and rehab, he’d harbored hopes that the problem had been resolved.
