Hefner's TJ surgery set for Wednesday

By Adam Rubin

NEW YORK -- Jeremy Hefner tweeted that his Tommy John surgery is scheduled for Wednesday morning. Hefner has a partially torn MCL in his right elbow. He is expected to miss most, if not all, of the 2014 season. Matt Harvey also is potentially facing that procedure, but on the UCL.

Surgery in the morning! Get this thing fixed and come back stronger! Thanks for the encouraging text and tweets
