Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher David Hernandez has been diagnosed with ligament damage in his right elbow and could need Tommy John surgery.

The Diamondbacks said Hernandez has damage to the ulnar collateral ligament and will seek a second opinion before a decision on surgery is made.
