Marek will undergo "Tommy John" surgery on Wednesday in Birmingham performed by Dr. James Andrews, a surgery that typically requires a 12-month recovery. Kemp said Marek found out about his diagnosis late Thursday.
"I talked to him and he was really upbeat about it," Kemp said. "He knows it’s a process. He’ll make the most of it and get back healthy."
Marek has a lot of fans on this site and throughout Braves Country, and I wish him a successful recovery.
