Mike Pelfrey's MRI sent to Dr. Andrews in Birmingham

Mike Pelfrey’s MRI has been sent to Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Alabama, although Pelfrey is not yet scheduled for a visit, according to Andy Martino of the Daily News.

Martino believes Pelfrey will likely have a second MRI and visit with Dr. Andrews in the near future.

Pelfrey was placed on the 15-day disabled list after an MRI revealed swelling in his right elbow yesterday and, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Pelfrey has a partial tear in the ulnar collateral ligament. However, Martino says neither Pelfrey nor the team are convinced there is a significant tear.
