First-round pick undergoes surgery

SEATTLE -- Angels general manager Tony Reagins confirmed a report in the Los Angeles Times that right-handed pitcher Cam Bedrosian, a first-round pick of the Angels in last year's First-Year Player Draft, had "Tommy John" elbow reconstruction surgery and will be out for the requisite 12-15 months.

Bedrosian, 19, is the son of former big league pitcher Steve Bedrosian and was selected 29th overall by the Angels out of East Coweta High School in Georgia.

Bedrosian, whose fastball has been clocked at 95 mph, went 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA in 12 innings of work for the Angels' rookie-league team in Arizona last year. He strained the elbow late last season and aggravated it in extended spring training in March.
