Dodgers farmhand Antonini tweets about elbow surgery.

Michael Antonini, who spent four days with the Dodgers this season without throwing a pitch, had surgery to remove a bone spur in his left (pitching) elbow Wednesday according to his Twitter feed:

The 27-year-old was recalled twice from Triple-A Albuquerque this season but didn’t get into a game. He was designated for assignment on July 31 and outrighted to Albuquerque on Aug. 3.

Antonini went on the minor league disabled list on Aug. 25 with left elbow irritation. For the year, he went 2-7 with a 5.71 earned-run average, splitting time between the Isotopes’ bullpen and starting rotation.
