Carl Pavano Injury: Rehab Start Pushed Back For Twins Starter

Carl Pavano has missed a decent portion of the Minnesota Twins' season due to injury and, unfortunately, it seems there's no end in sight. The starting pitcher's most recent setback came over the weekend, derailing plans for him to start Tuesday night's game for Class-A Fort Myers.

Pavano was scheduled to throw about 60 pitches in four innings for the Twins' minor league affiliate, but the Pioneer Press reports that he has instead decided to head to New York to visit his doctor due to recent complications with his velocity.

Carl Pavano had his latest rehab start pushed back so he can visit orthopedic specialist Dr. David Altchek in New York. He was scheduled to throw four innings and about 60 pitches for Class A Fort Myers on Tuesday, Aug. 21.

"He just wants to make sure there's nothing in there that's inhibiting him," Antony said.

Pavano was originally placed on the injured list June 4 due to an anterior capsular strain in his shoulder.
