Official diagnosis was a Grade 1 tear of his subscapularis muscle in his left shoulder. Grade 1 tears generally don't require surgery as the damage has been limited to individual fibers and not the general tissue itself.

Trying to keep the glass half full, hopefully John is able to return by late August or September healthy and effective. It would really be great to add a pitcher of his caliber, completely healthy and rested that deep into the season. Really could be a move that would put this team over the top.
