"Anything is possible," the Padres manager said of the possibility that Kelly would be the fourth Padres pitcher to have "Tommy John" surgery in the last 10 months. ... When asked about the possibility of Kelly having "Tommy John" surgery, General Manager Josh Byrnes said: "I'm not sure. We'll know more soon. I can't speculate. Hopefully, we'll get lucky."

wiseup: Loshe might be looking more atractive to San Diego. Also if Dodgers are still looking to trade Harang the Padres might look at that option.
