Barrett suffered a right elbow fracture and will see Dr. James Andrews on Monday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports. Barrett had already been rehabbing from Tommy John surgery last September, but this serious setback likely means at least another full calendar year on the shelf for the reliever. Another surgery is essentially a certainty for the right-hander, as Monday's consultation with the famed orthopedic surgeon is primarily to evaluate the extent of the damage.
Barrett (elbow) threw a 60-pitch bullpen session Friday, MASN's Dan Kolko reports. Barrett, who had Tommy John surgery last September, said he feels great, and it's good to see that he has begun the process of throwing bullpen sessions. However, it's still highly unlikely he'll return this season.
Barrett (elbow) was placed on the 60-day disabled list Friday. Barrett is recovering from September Tommy John surgery, and he still has several months to go in the process.

Barrett (elbow) had some bone chips removed from his left ankle last Thursday, William Ladson of MLB.com reports. Barrett continues to work his way back from Tommy John surgery, so the bone chip removal should be considered just a minor footnote barring a setback. The reliever still has a long road ahead, but have a chance at a late-season return.
Nationals pitcher Aaron Barrett underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow Thursday, reports The Washington Post. He will need at least a year to recover. "Everything was successful," manager Matt Williams said. "He's on the road to recovery now. It's disappointing for him certainly, but he's a warrior and he'll work hard to be back."
