The Dodgers insist Gagne will be back this year.

Quote:
According to the Los Angeles Times, "Eric Gagne's elbow surgery Friday was "a very simple little thing," according to Dr. Frank Jobe, and the All-Star closer could be back by late May. Jobe and Dr. Ralph Gambardella removed a sensory nerve that caused pain when Gagne threw, digging just beneath the skin and cutting it out in a 30-minute procedure. Jobe said the ligament appeared strong. "Now it's just a matter of the skin healing," he said. The Dodgers can only hope Gagne's recovery goes as smoothly as Jobe predicts. Last year, Gagne suffered a sprained elbow ligament at the end of spring training because he had rushed back from a knee injury, then had the June surgery after appearing in 14 games."
