Haeger to miss 2012 season after Tommy John surgery

Charlie Haeger (Kelly O'Connor)
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe is reporting that starting pitcher Charlie Haeger will require Tommy John surgery after injuring his right elbow. He suffered the injury while long tossing as part of his off-season workout regimen. The knuckleballer is expected to miss the entire 2012 season.

Haeger, 28, spent parts of five seasons in the major leagues with the White Sox, Padres, and Dodgers, and joined the Red Sox organization after signing a minor league contract in July 2011. He was assigned to Double-A Portland, making eight starts with a 4-1 record and 3.24 ERA. Haeger was re-signed in December, and was expected to be in the starting rotation of either Portland or Triple-A Pawtucket.
