Surgery: Would want to discuss directly with hand specialist, but would likely need surgery, although could potentially be done in off season. The combination of the ganglion inside the lunate weakening the bone and your sons sporting activity are causing edema in the bone, which is somewhat like having a stress fracture in the bone. If he has future hopes in baseball, will Likely need to be fixed.
