BOSTON (AP) -- Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi had surgery Tuesday to remove a loose body in his right elbow.
The arthroscopic procedure was performed by Yankees head team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Boston said Eovaldi is expected to return to pitching within six weeks.
"I don't want to give a timetable, but I think everybody knows around what it's going to take," Boston manager Alex Cora said before Tuesday's doubleheader with the Detroit Tigers. "He should be fin when he comes back and ready to roll."
