The Dodgers were already prepared to be without Walker Buehler for quite some time. But the assumption was that surgery was not on the table for him in his recovery from a flexor strain. That was the initial assessment over the weekend following his early departure.
But it sounds like Buehler did need to undergo arthroscopic surgery to remove some bone spurs this week. Bill Plunkett reported from the stadium this afternoon that Buehler confirmed the surgery on Monday.
But there is good news with it.
#Dodgers Walker Buehler said he had a bone spur removed from his elbow arthroscopically yesterday. Unrelated to flexor strain. Doesn’t change timeline.

Buehler not needing any additional time with the surgery is very encouraging. Hopefully, the removal of those bone spurs will help him get to where he needs to be sooner rather than later. His 10-12 week recovery time is still the window for him to get back on the mound.

It was a weird experience with the New York Mets coming into town last week. Apparently, a few of the players weren’t too happy with the way the Dodgers had the video rooms set up on the visiting side of things. They complained that the room was in very poor condition and that it smelt like urine. No word back from the team yet on if they plan on making any changes.
