The Orioles released Ondrusek (elbow) Wednesday. The right-hander recently had a scheduled visit with Dr. James Andrew to examine his elbow, and this transaction could have something to do with the injury. Now a free agent, Ondrusek may need plenty of time to heal before he's able to secure a spot with a new club.
Ondrusek (elbow) is scheduled to visit Dr. James Andrews for an examination on his elbow the week of March 20, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxOnline.com. The hurler underwent an MRI on his elbow earlier in the week but will seek a second diagnosis from one of the biggest medical names in sports. Ondrusek's outlook for the 2017 season remains cloudy.
Ondrusek (elbow) will undergo an MRA on Wednesday to evaluate the extent of his injury, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports. Ondrusek reported elbow discomfort Tuesday and it was reported he would seek an MRA if the pain didn't subside in the coming days. This is tough news for the right-hander as he battles for a spot in the Baltimore bullpen. Keep an eye on the results, which should reveal a better picture of the damage.
Ondrusek will undergo X-rays and an MRI if his elbow does not improve in the coming days, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Ondrusek and the Orioles are in wait-and-see mode with his sore elbow. Although the injury (suffered in Monday's game against the Tigers) wasn't thought to be serious, the right-hander's recovery has drawn apprehension. Speaking about his elbow, Ondrusek said, "It's never good to have any kind of pain or any kind of soreness or anything like that there, but until further things are done and as soon as we take more time and see what's going on, you start to think a little more about it." An injury concern is the last thing Ondrusek can afford as he battles for an MLB roster spot.
Ondrusek reported discomfort in his right elbow Tuesday, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports. The Orioles don't view the issue as anything serious, but Ondrusek will be held out of baseball activities for a day or two in hopes that the discomfort subsides. The 34-year-old made his spring training debut Friday, surrendering a hit and recording a strikeout across one scoreless inning. Ondrusek has spent most of the last two years in Japan, but he returned stateside to appear in seven games for the O's last season, struggling to a 9.95 ERA in only 6.1 innings.
