Braves reliever Moylan may be out for year with elbow injury

MIAMI (AP) - Atlanta Braves reliever Peter Moylan may need season-ending surgery on his injured right elbow.

Moylan will undergo another two weeks of treatment, the team said Thursday.

Moylan was put on the disabled list Tuesday. An examination Wednesday determined that a bone spur is pressing against a ligament in his elbow.

The Braves said he'll be re-evaluated after further treatment. If that does not work, Moylan might require reconstructive surgery.

Moylan was 0-1 with one save and a 1.59 ERA in seven games this season. He pitched 90 innings in 80 games as a rookie last year, going 5-3 with one save and a 1.80 ERA.
