Dodgers' Wood to have elbow surgery, out 2 months
The Los Angeles Dodgers are dealing with the third injury to their rotation in less than 24 hours.
Alex Wood is expected to miss the next eight weeks as the Dodgers announced Wednesday that the left-hander will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left elbow.
It's more bad news for the team, who placed Hyun-Jin Ryu on the 15-day DL Tuesday with elbow tendinitis and also shut down Clayton Kershaw's rehab after he experienced more back pain.
Wood hasn't pitched since May 30 after landing on the DL with an impingement in his left elbow. He tossed two innings of a simulated game Saturday.
The 25-year-old is 1-4 with a 3.99 ERA and 1.31 WHIP across 10 starts.
