Padres' Luebke to see Dr. Yocum

The SportsXchange

San Diego Padres pitcher Cory Luebke will see Dr. Lewis Yocum on Thursday to get a second opinion on his left elbow.

Luebke landed on the disabled list last week with what the team called a strained left elbow, but an MRI revealed ligament damage. There is a possibility that he may require season-ending ligament replacement surgery.

The lefty had posted a 2.61 ERA in his first six starts this season, striking out 23 in 31 innings.
