JJ Putz may be surgery-bound. From Newsday, via rotoworld:
J.J. Putz is headed to New York to have his sore right elbow examined and Newsday's David Lennon writes that "surgery seems like the logical next step."
Putz is bothered by a bone spur in his elbow that doesn't allow him to finish pitches. "I'm not following through because it hurts," Putz said. Putz lost his eighth-inning responsibilities to Bobby Parnell on Wednesday.
Not immediately relevant for everyone, but useful for handcuffers and deep-league speculators.
