Baker to undergo elbow surgery Tuesday
MINNEAPOLIS -- The Twins announced the date of Scott Baker's season-ending elbow surgery, as he'll have the procedure done by Dr. David Altchek in New York on Tuesday.

Baker and general manager Terry Ryan had said on Wednesday that Baker would miss the season with elbow surgery but didn't have a date sate for the operation until Friday.

The surgery will clean up scar tissue around Baker's elbow and repair his flexor pronator tendon. The recovery time is expected to be six months.

Altchek also performed Tommy John surgery on former Twins closer Joe Nathan and top pitching prospect Kyle Gibson.
