The Dodgers insist Gagne will be back this year.

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."
