Juan Morillo to undergo surgery on right elbow

It appears Juan Morillo (RAK) needs surgery on his right elbow.  He apparently returned to the US yesterday for additional testing.

Morillo initially injured his right elbow during an outing on 7/27 against the Softbank Hawks -- he threw only 8 pitches and was removed from the game.  Since then, Morillo has been rehabbing at Ni-gun, but without much luck.

Morillo signed a 1-year contract that included an option for a second year.  That second year might be in jeopardy depending on how things go with his elbow.
