Carlos Almanzar update

The S-T and DMN are both reporting that Carlos Almanzar is going to see Dr. Lewis Yocum to get a second opinion on his elbow. There apparently is some thought that he may not need the T-J ligament transplant surgery, meaning that he'd only have to undergo the procedure necessary to move the nerve in his elbow that is causing him problems.

If that is the case, he's a candidate to be back in the pen late this season, rather than being out until probably the ASB of 2006.
