Otsuka Out for 2008

Good thing the Brewers didn't make that rumored Gwynn Jr./Otsuka swap last season. Not only was he shut down for the season in early July last season, but it sounds like he's now done for the 2008 season as well:
Jon Daniels (Rangers GM) apparently shared some interesting news at a Rangers fan event yesterday, responding to a question about Akinori Otsuka's status by noting that the righthander, who turns 36 this Sunday, is headed for elbow surgery that will cost him the 2008 season. Certainly makes last month's non-tender a lot more understandable.
