After 3 Tommy John surgeries, Jonny Venters back in majors

BALTIMORE (AP) Jonny Venters has made a successful return to the majors after enduring three Tommy John surgeries and a six-year absence.

Pitching for the Tampa Bay Rays in his first big league appearance since the 2012 NL wild-card game, Venters entered in the sixth inning against the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night. He retired Chris Davis on a grounder - the only batter he faced.

He received high fives and fist bumps in the Tampa Bay dugout because, after all, it was a comeback that everyone could appreciate.
