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.

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.

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.

Orioles right-hander Bud Norris knew that a few days off from throwing wouldn't completely alleviate the stiffness in his elbow, but his arm is feeling better after his first throwing session since Wednesday.

Tillman said the tests are precautionary and added he wasn't worried that the injury would keep him out of the team's starting rotation. "I personally don't,” Tillman said. “We did a couple tests with the trainers and they said it looked really good. … It's just kind of a 'just-in-case' thing.

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, 24, will have a bone spur removed from his right elbow Wednesday by Orioles orthopedic surgeon Andrew Cosgarea . 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.
