Miami Marlins right-hander Eury Perez will have Tommy John surgery and miss the entire 2024 season, the team announced Thursday. 

The 20-year-old came up as one of the best pitching prospects in baseball last season and impressed over 19 starts. Perez went 5-6 with a 3.15 ERA and 108 strikeouts in 91.1 innings pitched. 

Perez appeared in four spring training games but opened the 2024 season on the injured list after experiencing elbow inflammation. The team was initially optimistic about his recovery but issues continued to persist, forcing the Dominican-born right-hander to go under the knife. 

The Marlins head into play Thursday with the worst record in Major League Baseball at 0-7.
