Rafael Soriano could be out for two months

This report via ESPN New York:

Yankees setup man Rafael Soriano will be out another 6-8 weeks after being diagnosed with an inflamed ligament in his right elbow.

Dr. James Andrews, after seeing Soriano on Wednesday, prescribed rest for two more weeks and then a conservative throwing program.

Making the announcement, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said the ligament is the same one that Soriano had Tommy John surgery on back in 2008.

Uh oh. So much for that three-year, $35 million investment. Does this injury affect the chances he stays with the Yankees beyond 2011? Remember, it’s his choice.
