Paulino awaiting date for his elbow surgery
KANSAS CITY -- Pitcher Felipe Paulino has not yet scheduled the date for reconstructive surgery on his right elbow. That awaits consultation with specialist Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles.

"I'm going to see him next week," Paulino said. "Then we'll make a decision on the date. It depends on his schedule."

Paulino said the inflammation in his elbow has to subside before surgery can be performed. He'll be the fourth Royals pitcher to have Tommy John surgery this year, joining Joakim Soria, Danny Duffy and Blake Wood.
