San Francisco Giants reliever José Álvarez still hopes to avoid elbow surgery and potentially throw again this year, and to that end he received a cortisone injection on Wednesday night.
Álvarez got a second opinion from famed orthopedist Dr. Keith Meister, who provided the same advice: try to rehabilitate the elbow, so the plan is to rest for a few weeks and then start a throwing program. “If there is still pain, we will make a decision then,” he said.
