Clay Condrey (elbow) has been presented with an alternative to surgery on his right arm.

Condrey could choose to have PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections instead of surgery to fix the strain in his right flexor muscle. If he does have the PRP injections, he could pitch again this season, but surgery would knock him out for the year. Manager Ron Gardenhire said a decision on Condrey will be made soon.

Clay Condrey (elbow) has been temporarily shut down from throwing.

Yet another setback for the rehabbing right-hander. Condrey has been on the disabled list since the beginning of the season with a muscle strain in his elbow and had just begun a rehab assignment. Now we once again have no timetable for his return. He shouldn't be counted on in the month of July.

Clay Condrey (elbow) will continue his rehab after tossing three scoreless innings Friday for Class-A Fort Myers.

"He threw the ball great," manager Ron Gardenhire said of Condrey. "Everything's coming out of his hand really good." Gardy wants to give Anthony Slama and Kyle Waldrop, who has both been terrific at Triple-A, a shot, but he acknowledged that Condrey might get the call first. "We signed him for a reason," Gardenhire said. We'll have to see."

Clay Condrey (elbow) suffered another setback Wednesday when he tried to throw.

"I think he's a little flustered right now trying to figure out what's going on," said Twins manager Ron Gardenhire. Condrey was diagnosed with a flexor strain of the elbow earlier this month. The current plan is to shut Condrey down and reevaluate him after an undetermined amount of time.
