An MRI exam on Tom Glavine's sore left elbow revealed a small tear of the flexor tendon, and the left-hander is expected to be out until at least the All-Star break in mid-July, the Braves announced Friday.
General manager Frank Wren said the injury cannot be repaired through surgery, and that the elbow just needs time to heal and scar over.
"Again, there's no specific date, but sometime around the All-Star break or a little thereafter," Wren said Friday during a conference call with reporters.
"It was the same little elbow thing," Cox said referencing the elbow discomfort Soriano felt in March. "It's getting better. But there's no sense in pushing it this time of year. We'd like to get him completely well to pitch the rest of the season."
