Tsuyoshi Wada signed a two year 8.15 million dollar contract and he might not even step on the mound this season for the O’s. Wada is getting checked out by Dr. Lewis Yocum who he did see him when he took his physical right before he joined the club a few months ago. The Oriole Skipper Buck Showalter did say “that he could rehab the injury and be back with the team”. Buck also said that there is always an option for surgery.
Either way Buck Showalter has a positive approach and does not seem to concern him. He has confidence with the direction that his doctor is taking Wada. The Skipper did not give any indication of a time line on when he will be back or when the decision will be made to go with the surgery.
