Orioles closer Bautista has had more work done on his elbow, but the team says his timeline has not changed
BALTIMORE — Orioles closer Félix Bautista had additional work done on his elbow Friday, but the team says it has no plans to change his timeline from Tommy John surgery.
Bautista missed the end of last season. The Orioles said the All-Star had a right elbow dislocation and an ulnar nerve transplant by Dr. Keith Meister in Dallas.
Bautista went 8-2 with a 1.48 ERA and 33 saves last year. He is expected to return before the 2025 season.
