According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Ben Sheets underwent successful elbow surgery Tuesday. A source claims that "a return in the second half is realistic barring setbacks." Sheets is shooting for August.
Clubs already are inquiring about signing Sheets for the second half. If healthy, he will be extremely attractive to contenders, who at that point could sign the former Brewers’ ace without forfeiting a top draft pick, writes Rosenthal.
It doesn’t sound like a team is going to take a chance on him before the season starts.
