After signing a 4-year, $62 million contract with the Giants this offseason, closer Mark Melancon’s campaign was cut short after just 32 games due to a lingering issue in his right elbow. Last Tuesday, Melancon had surgery to alleviate the rare muscular issue in his right forearm, and on Monday, he posted a picture of his post-surgery scar to Twitter.

Melancon struggled in 2017 while dealing with the issue, posting a 4.50 ERA, his worst since the 2012 season. He is expected to be ready to go come Spring Training.
