Luebke May Need Tommy John 

A season already off to a tough start might get even tougher if what Bill Center is reporting comes to fruition. Luebke, who missed his last start due to elbow discomfort, has a damaged ulnar collateral ligament (UCL), damage to the elbow flexor and fluid in the joint. The injury might require Tommy John surgery to repair and would need at least a year to successfully rehab.



About the author: Glen Miller

Life-long baseball and Padres fan who attended his first Friar games way back in 1983. I've been a contributor on Friarhood for more than two years and enjoy talking baseball with the knowledgeable fans that frequent the site. Prior to my beginning here I owned and operated my own San Diego sports site while writing for several other sites focusing specifically on hockey. When not watching, reading or writing about sports I might be sleeping or perhaps spending time with my family since I have few other hobbies. I did recently try my hand at golf and am a pretty good pool player to boot.
