Confirmed: LHP Jeremy Sowers (Indians' top pick in 2004) underwent surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff on Monday. He's out 9-12 months... Sowers will rehab at home in Virginia instead of w/ team in Ariz. this spring. Spent last season w/ AAA Columbus. Still under club control.Two separate tweets from Bastian. Sowers' career has somehow found a new, depressing low. His choice to be in VA instead of AZ strikes me as odd. It's probably not useful to read anything into it, though.
