Ryan O’Rourke will travel with the Minnesota Twins to Texas this week, and will get a second opinion on his injured elbow from Texas Rangers team doctor Keith Meister.

“Clarity — that’s all I need,” O’Rourke told the St. Pioneer Press.

O’Rourke, who remains the only former Merrimack player to reach the Majors, has been out since March 16 with a strained flexor pronator mass. He recently stopped his throwing program, which was part of his rehab, due to pain in the arm. MRIs revealed last week that there was no structural damage to O’Rourke’s elbow, which is a positive sign. However, Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Clay Buchholz just recently underwent surgery for a small tear in the same area of his throwing arm, and is expected to miss four to six months.
