Wada to seek second opinion on left elbow
BALTIMORE -- The Orioles said on Wednesday that Tsuyoshi Wada is going to see Dr. Lewis Yocum for a second opinion on his left elbow.

Wada had an MRA (magnetic resonance angiogram), which showed some form of ligament damage. The O's are going to meet with Yocum to help decide on what form of treatment to take -- possibly surgery.

Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said that Yocum did the original physical on Wada a few months ago when he signed a two-year, $8.15 million contract. Yocum also treated Wada a few years ago.

Even though surgery could be in the cards, Showalter said he's still holding out hope the Orioles will get Yada back sooner rather than later.

"There's still hope ... he could rehab this thing and be back," Showalter said. "[There's] always the potential of surgery. If that happens, the way things are nowadays, he could be pitching for us again. I know he's disappointed."
