It is something minor, less than half an hour (the surgery), and rehabilitation will take only a month. I have not been operated on before because I would have lost the season if I did it.

He’s had a terrific season, better than most had predicted when he signed, but this is bad news, especially since he’s signed for two more years. Minor surgery is still surgery and the elbow is as risky as the back in terms of future injuries. Color me concerned.
