Left-hander Cole Ragans, the Texas Rangers' first-round pick in 2016, is having his second career Tommy John surgery on Wednesday. The 21-year-old has not pitched since 2017 and was close to a return when he tore his ulnar collateral ligament. He began feeling discomfort about a week ago.

"Unfortunately, Cole's graft is torn," Rangers general manager Jon Daniels told reporters Tuesday. "It's obviously concerning. This is the first Tommy John surgery we've had that's failed." Ranked as the club's No. 10 prospect by MLB Pipeline, Ragans had his first surgery in March 2017.

The 6-foot-4 Ragans made 13 starts at Class A Spokane in 2017, posting a 3.61 ERA with 87 strikeouts in 57 1/3 innings.
