NEW YORK (AP) — Baltimore Orioles left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada will have elbow-ligament reconstruction surgery, likely delaying the Japanese left-hander’s major league debut for a year.

Wada has been sidelined since the last week of spring training. He was previously diagnosed with ligament damage after a magnetic resonance angiogram and saw Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles for a second opinion this week. The Angels’ team doctor will perform the surgery May 11.

Wada, 31, signed an $8.15 million, two-year contract in December. He made only two appearances during spring training because of soreness in his elbow. The tear was discovered after a rehabilitation outing for Triple-A Norfolk.
