Orioles right-hander Jake Arrieta said he's progressing well from August surgery to remove a ping-pong ball-sized bone chip from his right elbow. “I've done about eight weeks of rehab,” Arrieta said at Saturday's FanFest. “We did a lot of things out of the box.“ Arrieta started last season strong, winning five of his first six decisions and opening the season with a 9-4 record and 11 quality starts in his first 16 outings. But he struggled all through July as the elbow began to regress to the point where he knew he needed season-ending surgery.

St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols, the 2005 National League Most Valuable Player, had surgery on his troublesome right elbow, the team announced yesterday. The Cardinals said Pujols will begin his rehabilitation this week and "make his recovery" by spring training. Pujols, 28, underwent a 25-minute procedure to decompress and relocate the ulnar nerve in his right elbow, a joint that has given him problems since he strained a ligament there early in 2003. It had caused numbness, tingling in his ring finger and pinkie, weakness in his grip and pain along the inside of the forearm.

After making 18 big league starts, Orioles rookie right-hander Jake Arrieta has been shut down for the season, but not solely for the expected reason.

Arrieta said he has had the spur for years and it isn't painful, but the club decided to have it taken care of now as a precautionary measure. "I think it's going to be for the best. I talked to the doctor and the trainers, and we decided that I'm just going to go ahead and get that bone spur taken out," Arrieta said.

Orioles reliever Jamie Walker will not need surgery on his left elbow, his agent said yesterday. Walker spent the past two days in Birmingham, Ala., getting examined by noted orthopedist Dr. James Andrews. "He had his second appointment with Dr. Andrews today, and Dr. Andrews gave him a clean bill of health," said Phil Tannenbaum, Walker's agent. "He prescribed a little bit of rest and some exercises, and [Walker] should be ready to go for spring training." Walker, 37, who had been one of the most effective situational left-handers in baseball, is coming off perhaps the worst season of his major league career, which spans parts of nine seasons.

A second opinion on Daniel Cabrera's sprained right elbow revealed no further damage, Orioles president Andy MacPhail said yesterday. Cabrera, who was 8-10 with a 5.25 ERA in 30 starts before being shut down after his Sept. 13 start with elbow pain, was examined this week by University of Miami orthopedist Dr. John Uribe. MacPhail said Uribe's diagnosis "echoed" the one from team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens. "It just requires time off and rest, no surgery," MacPhail said. "It was something that was actually healing.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Barry Bonds wasn't in the San Francisco Giants' lineup last night, and he wasn't happy about it.As a reporter approached to ask the three-time MVP about his bruised right elbow, hit by a pitch Wednesday, he snapped, "Don't even try it, it's not good for your health," while waving a bat menacingly.Translated, that meant Bonds is day-to-day. A CT scan taken yesterday was negative, but the injury is problematic for Bonds, who has a bone chip in the joint from a previous injury.
