Wada makes statement on surgery

Lefty Tsuyoshi Wada had season-ending elbow-ligament (Tommy John) surgery Friday in California.

Dr. Lewis Yocum, who removed bone spurs from Wada’s elbow in 2007, performed Friday’s surgery.

The Orioles issued the following statement from Wada:

“The procedure went as planned and Dr. Yocum felt good about how it went. He predicts a full recovery,” Wada said. “I’m glad to have this over with and look forward to beginning my rehabilitation so I can get back to pitching for the Orioles as soon as possible.”

There is no set timetable on when he will return to Sarasota, Fla., to begin his rehab.
