Surgery a success

Yhency underwent Tommy John surgery at the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic in Inglewood yesterday, and everything appears to have gone well. Some details from the Daily Breeze (about halfway down the article):
Dr. Frank Jobe, who pioneered the procedure, and Dr. Ralph Gambardella performed the procedure, in which they also removed a bone spur that the torn ligament had pulled off from the joint. A team spokesman relayed word from the doctors that the removal of the bone spur should not complicate rehabilitation, which is expected to take from one year to 18 months.

Only 346 days until Opening Day 2007! But if Yhency isn't ready by then, just a short 709 days until Opening Day 2008!!!
