For the second time in two years, sources have told KHON2 Sports that University of Hawai’i ace left-handed pitcher Jarrett Arakawa has undergone shoulder surgery.
Arakawa was placed under the knife on the 8th of July, repairing his left labrum. It’s the same surgery Arakawa underwent in February of 2013.
This past season, the redshirt senior-to-be was solid, posting a 2.43 earned run average in 48.1 innings despite scattering five missed starts battling soreness.
Physicians believe Arakawa could return in 2015 if rehab goes well, otherwise he will have to petition the NCAA for a 6th year of eligibility to return to the diamond in Manoa in 2016.
In his career as a Rainbow Warrior, Arakawa has chucked 225.1 innings, carving a 3.36 ERA with 14 wins and 154 strikeouts.
