PHOENIX -- The nightmare spring for Dodgers pitcher Josh Ravin continues, as the right-hander was involved in an auto accident on Monday night and sustained a broken radial bone in his left forearm, the team announced on Tuesday. He was alone in the car, a team spokesman said.

Ravin had surgery on Tuesday in a Phoenix-area hospital, and is expected to miss eight to 12 weeks, per the team.

The Chatsworth High School grad pitched parts of 10 seasons in the minor leagues before making his major league debut with the Dodgers in 2015, his hometown team. He was 2-1 with a 6.75 ERA in nine games, with 12 strikeouts and four walks in 9⅓ innings last year.

The 28-year-old missed most of the first week of camp with the flu and strep throat, and lost nearly 20 pounds in the process. He had recovered enough to throw regular bullpen sessions on Saturday and Monday, before getting in the car accident on Monday night.

Rain tweeted this out Monday night, presumably after the accident.
