Dr. James Andrews agreed with the initial diagnosis that Octavio Dotel (elbow) does not need surgery.
''Neither physician is comfortable operating on the elbow,'' trainer Larry Davis said. ''Two guys he has seen are not very excited about operating at this time. If you go to enough places, somebody will try it.'' Dotel doesn't seem like a good bet to pitch effectively through pain, to say the least. Jun. 2 - 9:58 am et

Despite recommendations from four doctors against it, Octavio Dotel has decided undergo Tommy John surgery.
''Octavio does not feel he can pitch with the level of pain he was pitching with,'' A's trainer Larry Davis said Thursday. ''Everybody's tolerance level is different. Octavio feels like he's tried long enough. ... He's been throwing a long time and is tired of recurrent tendinitis.'' Some will question his manhood, but with Dotel eligible for free agency at the end of the season, he could have tried to tough it out for a few more months and then undergo surgery next year after getting his next contract. Now he'll have to take an incentive-laden deal this winter. Huston Street should remain Oakland's closer for the rest of the season. Jun. 2 - 9:23 pm et
