Rockies closer Adam Ottavino facing Tommy John surgery
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/4/15) Rockies closer Adam Ottavino is likely to need Tommy John surgery to repair his injured right elbow, Ottavino said to the Denver Post on Monday. A further evaluation with team doctors revealed a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow.
"Baseball is my love. So I will do everything I can to come back," Ottavino said Monday. "I've accepted it. I'll take it head on."
Ottavino was placed on the 15-day DL last week with a right triceps injury. Ottavino posted a 1-0 record with three saves in 10 1/3 innings of work this season. John Axford will likely fill in as the closer.
Rockies to decide on Adam Ottavino's elbow on Monday

|(5/4/15) Rockies closer Adam Ottavino will meet with the team's medical director on Monday, to learn the treatment plan for his triceps and elbow injury.
Ottavino is on the 15-day disabled list with an inflamed tricepts tendon, but an MRI last week showed the inflammation continues into the elbow, raising the concern that Tommy John surgery may be required.
"Nobody has said anything concretely about anything," Ottavino said, per MLB.com. "Until you are evaluated by a doctor … Those are the people who make those calls."
John Axford is filling in as closer. He has three saves and hasn't allowed a run, although with the Rockies in the midst of a five-game losing streak, he hasn't taken the mound since April 27.
Rockies pitcher Adam Ottavino worried about latest injury
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) Rockies pitcher Adam Ottavino is getting concerned about his latest injury that landed him on the disabled list, according to the Denver Post.
Ottavino, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a triceps injury, is hoping to avoid Tommy John surgery.
"I'm definitely worried," Ottavino said Wednesday. "I haven't had any elbow or triceps issues my whole career."
Manager Walt Weiss plans to have Ottavino rest his arm and see how the tricep inflammation feels later on in the week.
"We feel like we have a pretty good handle on what the MRI showed, as far as the inflammation," Weiss said. "We don't feel like a few days will make any difference."
MRI shows elbow injury in addition to triceps issue for Rockies' Ottavino
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/28/15) Rockies closer Adam Ottavino is expected to be on the disabled list longer than expected after an MRI revealed an elbow injury in addition to a triceps injury, the Denver Post reports.
"It's more than I thought it would be," Ottavino said. "Now I'm just waiting to find out more."
Ottavino was placed on the DL on Monday with right triceps inflammation. The 29-year-old right-hander allowed only six base runners (three hits) and notched three saves over 10 1/3 innings of relief.
"I didn't feel good pitching the last couple of times out," Ottavino said. "But I thought I felt all right."
Rockies place Adam Ottavino on DL, activate David Hale
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/27/15) The Rockies placed closer Adam Ottavino on the 15-day disabled list Monday due to right triceps inflammation, the team announced.
Ottavino has been brilliant over the first three weeks of the season, giving up just three hits and two walks in 10 scoreless innings while striking out 13 and recording three saves. Rockies reliever John Axford picked up a save Thursday and could be in line for more ninth-inning work in the wake of Ottavino's injury.
The team reinstated pitcher David Hale from the 15-day disabled list Monday and optioned him to Triple-A Albuquerque. He opened the season on the disabled list due to an oblique injury.
To take Ottavino's spot on the active roster, the team recalled pitcher Jorge Rondon from Albuquerque.
