Scott Baker will have elbow surgery, out for season

3:15 p.m. - Dustin Morse (from the Twins PR department) just tweeted that Terry RyanAttached Image: ScottBaker.jpg and Scott Baker will have a press conference at Target Field at 4:00 today.

UPDATE - 4:05 - At a press conference at Target Field, the Twins announced that RHP Scott Baker will undergo surgery to clean up his flexor tendon in his right elbow. The surgery ends Baker's 2012 season before it even got started. The surgery requires a six-month rehab period. He has no damage to his UCL.

Terry Ryan commented that he hopes that Baker will be ready for the 2013 season. It is an interesting comment since the Twins have a $9.25 million option for Baker for 2013 that certainly seems to be questionable at this point.

Please feel free to comment.
