OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Oakland Athletics rookie left-hander Josh
Outman will have surgery on his pitching elbow Tuesday.

The Athletics didn't immediately announce the severity of the surgery or a timetable for Outman's return.

Outman visited with Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., on Monday. Outman was transferred to the 60-day disabled list a day earlier, signaling the club expects a lengthy recovery period.

Outman was a bright spot for the last-place A's this season, going 4-1 with a 3.48 ERA. He left his last start in San Diego on June 19 in the second inning with what the team called a sprained elbow.
