Kris Medlen Emotionally Discusses Injury

Scott Cunningham

Medlen gets emotional while discussing his probable surgery, being a dad and his teammates.

680 The Fan posted audio of their interviews with Kris Medlen this afternoon. As some of you all have probably heard, he, quite understandably, got really emotional. The third one down is the longest at 3:11, but they're all worth a listen to, so I'll just let Meds speak for himself. If the embedded player doesn't work, each link takes you to each clip:


Medlen discusses mentally preparing for a second Tommy John surgery.

Medlen discusses being a dad and that putting things into perspective.

Medlen talks about when he knew there was a problem.

Medlen talks about getting multiple opinions on the injury.

Medlen talks about the support from his teammates.

Thanks again to 680 The Fan for posting these clips.
