Mount St. Joseph graduate and Atlanta Braves right-hander Gavin Floyd was pitching just fine Thursday night, until his right elbow sprouted something. Gavin Floyd's elbow ¿¿¿¿ pic.twitter.com/Tajqc1mRAW - Jake Rogers (@TheRealJakeR) June 20, 2014 This is the same elbow Floyd had Tommy John surgery on last year. The diagnosis, apparently, is a fractured olecranon , a funny word that I gather is used to describe the bony tip of the elbow. He could miss the rest of the season.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The Orioles received good news Wednesday when renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews recommended that catcher Matt Wieters rest his sore right elbow instead of undergoing surgery. For now, Wieters will not catch in order to rest his elbow, but the Orioles plan to keep the hot-hitting switch-hitter in the starting lineup at designated hitter. “It doesn't hurt him to hit at all,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “That's not a factor either way. I'm not going to give you an exact timeframe for when he will be catching again, but I think if it proceeds down the path we think it will, he'll be catching again in the near future.” Wieters, who arrived at Tropicana Field just before the start of Wednesday's game, was not in the Orioles' starting lineup against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Orioles left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada came out of this second live game spring start confident that the elbow problems that have hindered his bid for a starting rotation spot have subsided. Wada threw 47 pitches in three extended innings (10 outs) in a minor-league game against the Red Sox's Double-A team at Twin Lakes Park on Thursday afternoon. Asked after his outing if he was confident the left elbow discomfort that crept up in the second week of camp is a thing of the past, the Japanese-born Wada, who speaks to the media through an interpreter, didn't need any help to give his message.

Washington Nationals closer Drew Storen will visit renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews today for a second opinion on his right elbow, manager Davey Johnson said. Storen will almost certainly not need Tommy John ligament-replacement surgery, a typical fear when players visit Andrews. But depending on the results of Andrews' examination, Storen could miss at least half the season because of a "loose body" in his elbow and the surgery that would be required to remove it. Storen, 24, felt tenderness in his elbow Sunday while throwing a simulated game, particularly when he threw fastballs.

Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman left Sunday afternoon's series finale against the Yankees after three innings with tightness in his right elbow. Tillman, who entered Sunday's start having won six of his past seven decisions, had retired four straight Yankees hitters. He allowed a two-run homer to center fielder Chris Dickerson, who was making his first start of the season in relief of the injured Curtis Granderson. Tillman battled his control early, issuing two walks and a pair of wild pitches in his first two innings of work.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - It's unclear whether there's any real cause for alarm, but the Orioles are taking no chances with pitcher Rich Hill and his sore left elbow. Though X-rays on the elbow revealed no structural problem, the left-hander was sent for a magnetic resonance imaging before yesterday's game to rule out any possibility that his arm soreness is the result of a significant injury. "He's getting the whole kit and caboodle," manager Dave Trembley said. The news was pretty good.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Catcher Matt Wieters said Wednesday that it seemed inevitable that he would need season-ending elbow surgery shortly after he resumed throwing less than three weeks ago. He also said it was important to undergo the procedure immediately in order to have the best chance of being ready for Opening Day next season. Wieters, who had Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery Tuesday, said he felt good a day after the procedure and is looking forward to beginning the rehabilitation process quickly to ensure that he's back for the beginning of the 2015 season.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- In recent days, the Orioles feared that the possibility of losing catcher Matt Wieters for the season was becoming closer to reality. Still, the club clung to any shred of optimism that the two-time All-Star and two-time American League Gold Glove winner would be able to help down the stretch. Any hope of that was extinguished Monday after his follow-up visit to renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews in Gulf Breeze, Fla. Wieters will have Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery Tuesday at noon, performed by Andrews, that will end his season.

Catcher Matt Wieters said before Tuesday's game against the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards that he could have surgery next Tuesday on his right elbow if Dr. James Andrews determines during his appointment Monday that the procedure is necessary. "If we do decide that that's the route to go, then the quicker the better, obviously," Wieters said. "The elbow just wasn't quite discomfort-free. It was something where we were hoping it would be a little further along at this point, and at this point in the year, we want to make sure that we get the best eyes on it and be able to have him look at it and be able to make a decision when he sees it. " Wieters initially visited Andrews on May 7, when the doctor determined he didn't need surgery on a strained right elbow.

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters hasn't progressed as quickly as expected in his recovery from a right elbow strain, and he will visit Dr. James Andrews in Gulf Breeze, Fla., next Monday to determine if he needs surgery. “I think it's something that Matt would like to do just to make sure that [Andrews] agrees with where he is and the way we're proceeding,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Monday. It will be the second visit to Andrews for Wieters, who has been on the 15-day disabled list since May 11. He has been throwing every other day, and Showalter said the catcher had one of his best sessions Monday but is still experiencing discomfort.

MILWAUKEE -- Orioles catcher Matt Wieters will do some light throwing Friday before the game against the Houston Astros, manager Buck Showalter said after the club's 8-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday. It will be the first time Wieters has thrown in three weeks. Showalter said he wasn't sure how long Wieters will throw Friday. Wieters has not played in a game since May 10, when the Orioles decided to shut him down completely to rest his strained right elbow. Before that, he had served as the club's designated hitter for four games because he only felt the pain when he threw.

HOUSTON -- Orioles catcher Matt Wieters isn't looking beyond Friday, when he is scheduled to throw for the first time in more than three weeks, but he's still encouraged by the progress with his right elbow. "It's gotten a lot better over the last few days, which is what we were waiting on," Wieters said Thursday. "Now it's just a matter of going through the throwing progression and hopefully everything keeps getting better. "Every movement that gets me back towards getting on the field is good.

Orioles left-hander Randy Wolf has been shelved with left elbow discomfort, manager Buck Showalter said Monday. The 36-year-old Wolf, signed Aug. 31, is scheduled to have an MRI performed on the elbow Tuesday morning. An anti-inflammatory injection could follow. He was evalualted by Orioles team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens before Monday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays. Showalter said Wolf began feeling discomfort toward the end of his spot start Saturday in Boston. Wolf appeared to labor late in his outing at Fenway Park, where he went five innings and allowed three runs on seven hits.

The Orioles will be without left-hander Randy Wolf for the remainder of the season. Wolf was placed on the 60-day disabled with a tear in the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow before Wednesday's game. The 36-year-old Wolf will likely need a second Tommy John surgery to pitch again. The prognosis on Wolf, who was signed Aug. 31 to add left-handed bullpen depth, didn't appear to be promising Tuesday when manager Buck Showalter wouldn't discuss the results of an MRI performed that morning, only saying that Wolf would speak with team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens and Dr. Lewis Yocum, who performed Tommy John surgery on Wolf's elbow in 2005.  “We'll see what Randy and the doctors want to do,” Showalter said before Wednesday's game.

PITTSBURGH -- Catcher Matt Wieters celebrated his 28th birthday Wednesday on the road with his team. But Wieters is still waiting out the stiffness in his right elbow, and he remains unsure about when he'll be able to test it by throwing. Initially, doctors said he needed to wait two weeks before throwing. That two-week mark was Wednesday. "It's getting better. We want it to feel about normal before we get back to throwing," Wieters said. "We're not going to worry about setting timetables until it gets feeling good, and then we'll set a schedule from there.

Injured Orioles catcher Matt Wieters had a platelet-rich plasma injection in his strained right elbow last Monday in hopes of accelerating his recovery. “Thought it could only help speed up the healing,” said Wieters, who is not scheduled for any more PRP injections at this time. Wieters, who has been on the 15-day disabled list since May 11, has no set timetable for his return. Because the discomfort only occurs when he throws, the plan was for Wieters to rest the elbow for at least two weeks before attempting to throw again.
