George A. King III is reporting that Brett Gardner had arthroscopic surgery on his injured right elbow today and everything went as planned. Team physician Chris Ahmad performed the surgery and said there told Gardner's agent that there were "no surprises" and "they found what they expected to find."
On the positive side of things, Brian Cashman was raving about Joba Chamberlain's recovery today while on WFAN:“Joba’s out of control. The stuff he’s featuring is remarkable. He’s as high as 100 (mph) but upwards consistently (at) 96, 97, 98. He looks really good.”
“He’s an amazing guy,” Cashman said on WFAN. “He’s been hurt, he gets hurt a lot, but then his recovery time is like super-human -- always beats the standard. So yeah, he’s due back here shortly. I mean, the worst-case scenario would be the first week of August, but he should be here ahead of that.”
