More bad news for Tyler Yates, who seemed to finally be healthy after a lengthy recovery from Tommy John surgery in July 2009. After pitching all spring, Yates has now been diagnosed with a torn flexor tendon in his right elbow. The diagnosis came after a visit to Dr. James Andrews.
The Pirates announced that they will give a further update on Yates after he is reexamined in six weeks.
