Meredith's season over before it starts

by Matt Lincoln

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Richmond native Cla Meredith won't get a chance to pitch for the Major League team closest to his home.  The Washington Post is reporting the former VCU star will have Tommy John ligament-replacement surgery, ending his season before it even starts with the Nationals.

Meredith experienced pain in his surgically repaired elbow early this spring.  In October, the former Ram had surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow. In his first bullpen session of the spring, Meredith felt pain in his elbow, which eventually revealed a torn ligament.

Meredith signed a league contract with the Nationals this winter after spending 2010 in AAA with the Orioles.  The Meadowbrook High graduate started his career with the Red Sox, but most of his major league experience has been with San Diego.  He has pitched in 286 major league games over six seasons, with a career record of 14-14 and an era of 3.62.
