Elbow surgery on Twins' Liriano goes as planned
The team said the procedure, performed in southern California by Dr. Lewis Yocum with assistance from Twins physician Dr. John Steubs, took about 90 minutes and went without any complications.
Liriano, who went 12-3 with a 2.16 ERA last season before elbow pain knocked him out of the lineup, will miss the entire 2007 season as he rehabilitates from the ligament transplant procedure known as Tommy John surgery.
