Orioles LHP Wada seeks 2nd opinion on ailing elbow

Associated Press  |  Last updated April 25, 2012
Orioles pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada will get a second opinion on his ailing left elbow from orthopedist Dr. Lewis Yocum. Orioles manager Buck Showalter says Wada was diagnosed with ligament damage after undergoing a magnetic resonance angiogram. The Japanese left-hander intends to visit Yocum to determine whether the ligament is severely torn and if surgery will be required. Yocum examined Wada before the pitcher signed a two-year, $8.15 million contract during the offseason. Wada experienced elbow discomfort in February and was placed on the disabled list before the season. He has yet to make his major league debut. Showalter said the current injury is in a part of the elbow. Showalter said of Wada: ''He could rehab this thing and be back,'' but acknowledged surgery is definitely a possibility.
