Cause for concern? Litsch to visit Dr. Andrews

If you are a baseball player, you never want to book a visit with Dr. James Andrews, the renowned surgeon that potentially seriously injured athletes visit in Alabama.

Jays starter Jesse Litsch will be visiting Andrews Monday as a precautionary measure after feeling tightness in his forearm and elbow during a normal game of catch Friday. The club is optimistic they'll hear good news from Andrews, and that Litsch will return to the rotation sometime in mid May.

Considering that its very rare for a ball player to be given a clean bill of health after visiting Andrews, Litsch's ailment might be far worse than originally thought.
