Former Charger Battles Back from Elbow Surgery

Posted: Updated:

The Great Falls Chargers season ended on Sunday with the teams Alumni game in which a former Chargers great made his return to the field.

Tanner Watson who went to CMR, starred as a prep with a 2.48 ERA, .443 batting average and 60 RBI. He now plays for MSU-Billings. However, Watson hasn't taken the field in over a year. In 2014, the 6 foot 2 pitcher and first baseman appeared in just 11 games for the Yellow Jackets before tearing a ligament in his throwing elbow. The big southpaw has been rehabbing from Tommy John surgery ever since. Normal rehab time is anywhere from 12 to 15 months, but Watson says he's taking things slow and expects to be fully healed soon

"It's good. I've taken a little longer just because I didn't have to be back for 12-14 months like most people. So I've been taking a little longer and just trying to get healthy and back by September," Watson says.
