Interesting. You got me Googling and it turns out 26% of all active MLB pitchers as of 2017 had had TJS. Wonder if that number has increased.

~87% of all games featured at least one pitcher who had the procedure that year.

The article is from April 2018 so there's updates to people who had the surgery early that year also.
