Harnisch faces surgery again

Reconstruction could end ex-Red's career

The Associated Press

        DENVER — The Colorado Rockies will lose right-hander Pete Harnisch for the season because of elbow surgery.

        Harnisch, 35, was attempting a comeback after having surgery last August to repair a torn flexor tendon in his pitching elbow. When his recovery slowed this spring, Harnisch sought a medical explanation.

        An examination showed Harnisch has a torn ligament, which will be surgically reconstructed Monday.

        Probst said the typical recovery time for such an injury is 16 to 18 months.

        “It could be career-ending — for anybody who has it,” Probst said.
