  • Twins haven't been immune to wave of Tommy John elbow surgeries

    MINNEAPOLIS Minnesota Twins righthander Mike Pelfrey knows exactly why he tore the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow in 2012 and he's certain that it wasn't because of overuse during his younger days. That's become the popular theory to explain...
