JR Towles To Have Thumb Surgery

Former 2004 G-Stro J.R. Towles will miss some time due to surgery on his thumb. The injury occurred on June 8th when he tagged a runner out in a collision at the plate.  After a MRI didn't show anything and he still couldn't move his thumb, he was sent to a hand specialist who recommended surgery.  It is unknown how long Towles will be out of action.

Towles had started the season with the Cardinal organization in AAA.  He was released and signed by the Dodgers and was playing for Alburquerque (AAA) when the injury occurred.
