PLAYERS: Kyle Drabek
TEAMS: Toronto Blue Jays
Blue Jays right-hander Kyle Drabek may require elbow surgery for the second time after an MRI Friday revealed a torn ligament. Drabek, who underwent ligament replacement surgery as a minor leaguer in 2007, will visit Dr. James Andrews on Monday to confirm the diagnosis. The former first round pick left Wednesday's start against Washington in the fifth inning after feeling what he called a ''popping'' in the back of his surgically repaired elbow. The Blue Jays placed Drabek on the 15-day disabled list earlier Friday, calling the injury a sprain, before general manager Alex Anthopoulos revealed news of the tear at a press conference later in the afternoon, before Toronto's game against Philadelphia. Drabek is 4-7 with a 4.67 ERA in 13 starts.
