    Reds pitcher Volquez has surgery

    CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati Reds right-hander Edinson Volquez underwent elbow ligament-replacement surgery Monday and is expected to miss approximately 12 months, the team said.
    The 90-minute procedure, known as Tommy John surgery, was performed by Reds medical director Dr. Timothy Kremchek. Volquez also had a torn flexor mass in the elbow repaired.
    On the disabled list since June 2, Volquez, who made just nine starts this season, could throw only 20 pitches of a simulated game scheduled for 80 on Friday before complaining of tightness in a muscle.
    Volquez is 4-2 in his second season with the Reds after being acquired from Texas for outfielder Josh Hamilton before the 2008 season. Volquez was Cincinnati's only All-Star last year, which he finished with a 17-6 record.

    Not good for Cincy I wonder if that will open the doors for a bunch of reds getting traded in Aug.

    What a shock, a good pitcher managed by Dusty Baker has arm problems.

    Who could have seen this coming?
