Former Portland Sea Dogs pitcher Junichi Tazawa is in Birmingham, Ala. today seeing the renowned Dr. James Andrews about his right elbow.
The Red Sox released no more information, but normally a visit to Dr. Andrews is a cause for alarm. Dr. Andrews specializes in Tommy John surgeries.
That said, other pitchers have visited Dr. Andrews and have been given less drastic news.
Tazawa was expected to be assigned to Pawtucket, but he remains on the major league spring training roster.Tweet
