Cory Luebke. might need Tommy John surgery

Postby SpecialFNK » Fri May 04, 2012 8:24 pm

According to the Union-Tribune San Diego, Cory Luebke may need Tommy John surgery to repair his sore left elbow.
Luebke went for an MRI Wednesday, and the Padres are awaiting the results. If Luebke were to need the surgery, it would be a devastating blow to the Padres' rotation. Stay tuned for further updates as we know more about the situation.

An MRI on Luebke's elbow showed ligament damage and he might need Tommy John elbow surgery, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Recommendation: Luebke's damage was in the flexor tendon and the ligament. The Padres haven't made an official pronouncement. "The MRI showed some fluid and damage in the elbow," Luebke said Friday. "But I think it's best for the club to say anything else. I'm going to wait some time here and get a second opinion."

Crud..this is not what I was hoping for. Sounded good just the other day that he'd be ready to go when able to come off the DL..
