Now dont hold me to this, but I found this posted somewhere else. So I dont know if it is true or not. I figure I would post it since I know some of you are stashing Baldelli in hope of him returning soon. Hopefully it is not an accurate source.
ST. PETERSBURG - Rocco Baldelli's comeback from knee surgery could soon be sidetracked by Tommy John surgery on his right elbow.
The Devil Rays center fielder, who suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee playing with his younger brother in their Rhode Island back yard last fall, injured the elbow while working out on the field at the Raymond Naimoli complex this week.

The St. Petersburg Times reports it appears Rocco Baldelli will have season-ending Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. He will be examined Wednesday in Birmingham, Ala., by noted orthopedic surgeon James Andrews.
Baldelli, who blew out the ACL in his left knee this past October, was expected back in the lineup as soon as July 1. It is believed he suffered the injured elbow last week on a throw during pregame warmups. It might be time for owners in seasonal formats to cut ties with Baldelli.
