    Lester Oliveros out for the rest of the season with elbow issues

    They say that he "just has bone chips" on his pitching elbow, which need surgery to be removed. Hope it is just that and he has a quick recovery.

    Another elbow issue in the organization.

    I predict he will need Tommy John, labrum and rotator cuff surgery and will miss the next 17 seasons.
    Papers...business papers.

    I'm guessing everyone will say it's Terry Ryans fault and the whole front office should be gone.

    We need to have our guys stop throwing, so that they never injure their elbows anymore. Can you have a pitching machine on the mound? Would that be better than or equal to our starters right now?
    Better looking with the lights out.

    He's been dealing with this since the first time he was on the DL. Can pitch with bone chips, but whats the use, get it fixed ASAP.

    Hope the guy who did Joe Nathan's surgery isn't working this one. Wasn't it cleaning out his bone chips and bone spurs what caused his tendon to become detached?

    something like that... he had the procedure done in teh offseason and tore his UCL right away in spring training.

    I've read that bone chips can be a factor for eventual TJ surgery, so knowing the Twins, he'll be in line for TJ surgery in June or so.
