San Ramon Valley two-way baseball standout Alex Palsha is set to undergo Tommy John surgery next week and will miss the remainder of the season he confirmed Tuesday. Palsha, who is set to play at Cal State Fullerton next year, expects to miss 9 months while recovering from the procedure.
It’s a huge loss for the Wolves as Palsha is carrying a .615 batting avg through four games. Last week, he went 5-for-7 with a double, homer and 5 RBI. He’s also logged two innings on the mound without allowing a hit.
He’s projected to pitch when he gets to Fullerton.
