Marlins outfielder Alfredo Silverio underwent his second Tommy John surgery on his right elbow on Wednesday and will miss the remainder of the 2013 season.

He was the team's top pick in the Rule 5 Draft this past December after hitting .306 with 16 home runs and 85 RBI with the Dodgers' Double-A affiliate in 2011. He missed the entire 2012 season after sustaining injuries in a car crash.
