Braves Sign Dr. James Andrews to Three-Year Contract

Tim Hudson will undergo Tommy John surgery tomorrow in Pensicola, Florida, performed by Dr. James Andrews. While he's down there, he'll have some company. Reliever Rafael Soriano will be examined today by Andrews in an effort to determine what the cause of Soriano's elbow discomfort is.

This is especially troubling news since Soriano has already had Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in August of 2004. The surgery then was not done by Andrews, but by Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles.

The good news is that Chipper Jones is scheduled to come off the disabled list tomorrow, and Tom Glavine should return to the Braves after a succesful rehab start on Saturday.
