San Diego Padres SP Joe Wieland (elbow) is dealing with soreness in the triceps area of his right elbow, and he'll fly to San Diego to meet with team doctors and undergo an MRI exam. The soreness is in the same area he had a triceps strain last year while recovering from reconstructive elbow surgery in 2012. It's in a different area than his ulnar collateral ligament. The Padres were happy with the way Wieland was throwing the ball this spring, hitting the mid-90s with his fastball.
Fantasy Tip: The good news is that this injury doesn't seem related to his Tommy John surgery. However, it could be a significant setback for Wieland and hurt his chances of cracking the rotation next season.
