Liriano considering surgery

Still in pain, Liriano now considering elbow surgery
Still experiencing pain in his left elbow, Twins pitcher Francisco Liriano has left the team's year-round facility in Florida and is considering surgery after being unsatisfied with rehabiliation.

It's unclear if Liriano, if he elects to have surgery, will have an exploratory operation or opt for Tommy John surgery to repair the ligament. The latter could knock Liriano out for next season, which would be a blow to a Twins team that will have high expectations next year.
