[5/18/2017] Tsuyoshi Wada might have elbow surgery

According to media reports from this morning, Tsuyoshi Wada might have surgery to remove loose cartilage in his left elbow. If he goes under the knife, the best case scenario for his return to the active roster would be September, assuming he has the procedure some time this month. However, nothing has been decided yet. Therapy is still an option.

Wada is considering surgery because his rehab has not been going as well as he would like. He has had surgery on his elbow twice in the past.
