San­tos to have el­bow surgery

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL -

New York Yan­kees righthander Ser­gio San­tos is go­ing to have sea­son- end­ing Tommy John surgery, and left- han­der Ja­cob Lind­gren is set to have a bone spur re­moved from his el­bow.

The Yan­kees made the an­nounce­ment about San­tos on Sun­day, two days af­ter the oft- in­jured re­liever was placed on the dis­abled list be­cause of el­bow inf lam­ma­tion.

Lind­gren, who was taken in the sec­ond round in the 2014 draft and who made his big league de­but May 25, was op­tioned to triple- A Scran­ton/ Wilkes- Barre on June 13. The Yan­kees tweeted that the re­hab and re­cov­ery pe­riod should be no more than 12 weeks.

The Yan­kees signed San­tos to a mi­nor league deal on June 9 af­ter he was re­leased by the Dodgers. He even­tu­ally made two ap­pear­ances for New York be­fore in­jur­ing his el­bow. The 31- year- old San­tos made his de­but in 2010 and had 30 saves for the White Sox a year later. But he spent much of the next three sea­sons with Toronto on the DL. He had sea­son- end­ing shoul­der surgery in 2012, then missed most of 2013 af­ter el­bow surgery. Etc.

Colorado Rock­ies out­fielder Car­los Gon­za­lez left Sun­day’s game against Mil­wau­kee be­cause of a mild sprain in his left hand. The Rock­ies an­nounced he is day to day. … The Bos­ton Red Sox claimed vet­eran backup catcher Erik Kratz off waivers.
