Hutchison gets second opinion on elbow
MILWAUKEE -- After Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison met with Dr. Tim Kremchek in Cincinnati for a second opinion on his injured right elbow, manager John Farrell said there was no new news to report.

"The evaluation with Dr. Kremchek came back and was consistent with the sprain that was discovered with the first test in Toronto," Farrell said. "[Hutchinson has] taken that information. He's also gone back to Florida and reported back to Dunedin.

"He's going to go through some additional testing with our doctors in Florida, and then at that point, he'll take all the information gathered, sit down with his family and determine the next plan of action."

That next plan of action could include Tommy John surgery, which fellow starter Kyle Drabek had done by Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday.

"I'm not saying that's completely ruled out," Farrell said. "But I think at this point, he probably needs another day or two to work through some things on his own behalf and certainly discuss some things with his family."
