Nady to avoid surgery

According to SI.com’s Jon Heyman, Xavier Nady has a partially torn ligament in his right elbow and will not need surgery.

The Yankees feared originally Nady could be lost for the season with a completely torn ligament, but a review of multiple X-rays revealed that the ligament is only partially torn. He will likely need to rehab the injury for a period of weeks, perhaps a month.

This is obviously great news.  Heyman suggests Nady can return as the team’s DH, as the Yankees are concerned about Hideki Matsui’s knees.
