Athletics correspondent Casey Tefertiller has the latest on star-crossed 18-year-old Michael Ynoa. The righthander signed with Oakland in 2008 for $4.25 million, an unsurpassed bonus amount for an amateur from Latin America. Tefertiller writes:
Ynoa will be visiting two or three doctors to receive different opinions on his sore elbow, A's farm director Keith Lieppman said. The organization has taken a conservative approach in trying to let the talented Dominican rest and rehabilitate his elbow without surgical intervention. But now they want insight from multiple doctors to determine the best course of action and evaluate options. “We don't know if it will be surgery, we just have to wait and see,” Lieppman said.
The A's have limited Ynoa's pitches and innings this year, but the teenager has been plagued by continued soreness.
