Ryan O’Rourke Progressing in Rehab From Tommy John Surgery


Former Merrimack College pitcher Ryan O’Rourke is progressing in his rehab from Tommy John surgery earlier this season. O’Rourke initially felt the symptoms of the injury during spring training and was ultimately shut down. After more tests, it was determined that he needed surgery to fix the issue in his elbow.

According to, O’Rourke recently said he was feeling good and “progressing nicely” in his rehab. There was no timetable set for his return, but he threw some dry throws (without a baseball) off a mound earlier this month.

Later this month, O’Rourke has an appointment with Dr. David Altchek, the surgeon who performed the surgery, and the next step in his rehab will be determined then.

O’Rourke also recently ran in a charity race put together by Twins closer, Glen Perkins.
