MLB Tommy John kill sheet 2014: All the players going under the knife this season

The recent EPIDEMIC of Tommy John surgeries might have started with Matt Harvey, but when will it stop?

Before Mets ace Matt Harvey had Tommy John surgery near the end of 2013, the most notable players to undergo the operation -- and the subsequent year of recovery time -- were mostly minor leaguers dating back to Brandon Beachy's first TJS in 2012. Brian Wilson also went under the knife that year, but before that, you might have to go back to Adam Wainwright's 2011 operation to find another prominent name to require the surgery.

Many, many players underwent the operation from 2011 to yesterday, but there haven't been quite as many marquee names on this list of UCL injurees ... until recently.

It was a nice stretch of relatively uninterrupted Major League Baseball, but now the collective Ulnar Collateral Ligament of humanity has gone on strike once again.

Thirty one UCL surgeries have been performed in 2014, starting with Corey Lubke in February, and bumping up against the present with the most recent operation.

Here's a list of the players who have had the operation in 2014 starting with the most recent surgery -- we'll be updating the list as it grows.
