ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- The 2016 post season isn't over yet, but the Cardinals have been dealt a blow for 2017.

MLB.com is reporting Cardinals relief pitcher Zach Duke underwent Tommy John surgery last week. He is expected to miss the entire 2017 season.

Duke was acquired late in the season. Part of the Cardinals attraction to him was that he was locked up for 2017.
