Condrey in search of second opinion

MLB.com—May 27, 2010

Twins right-hander Clay Condrey will get a second opinion on his right elbow pain before deciding whether to keep throwing or shut himself down for two months.

Condrey, 34, has not pitched in a game this season for the Twins. The right-hander began experiencing discomfort in his throwing arm at the end of Spring Training and has spent the entire season on the 15-day disabled list in an attempt to rehab his strained right elbow.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said that Condrey will now go to New York to be examined by Dr. David Altchek, Co-Chief of the Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York and team physician for the Mets. Altchek performed Joe Nathan's Tommy John surgery this past March.

"He has a big decision, so he's going to get another opinion, which is a good thing," Gardenhire said. “He should. If he goes down there and starts throwing and something were to happen, it'd be a hard road back.”
