8/9 Silva update

Carlos Silva underwent successful cardiac ablation at Northwestern Memorial Hospital Monday. He had a procedure known as Radio Frequency Catheter Ablation (RFCA) performed to prevent recurrence of his paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT). The procedure lasted approximately two hours and was performed by Bradley Knight, M.D.

He was discharged home from Northwestern Memorial Hospital later Monday after
a normal period of observation. At this time, the expectation is Silva will begin light activity this week and begin a throwing program by the start of next week.
