Rodriguez will undergo surgery for loose bodies in the back of his elbow, and will miss 8-to-10 weeks, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

It appeared that Rodriguez was set to rejoin the Dodgers in the near future, but something more has been discovered in his elbow that will require a procedure. The newest issue will sideline him at least two months, holding him out for most, if not all of the remainder of the 2015 season.

Rodriguez (elbow) will join the Dodgers in Arizona early next week, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

Dr. Neal ElAtrache will give Rodriguez one final look over this weekend, but it sounds like the plan is for the lefty to be activated in time for Monday's series opener against the Diamondbacks. Rodriguez completed a successful rehab stint in the minors, tossing four scoreless innings with three hits allowed and six strikeouts in four appearances between High-A and Triple-A.

Rodriguez (elbow) will start a rehab assignment Monday, the Los Angeles Time's Dylan Hernandez reports.

This is excellent news for Rodriguez, who may now be just a week or two from rejoining the Dodgers' bullpen. He had a 2.61 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 18 appearances prior to landing on the DL and should work in mid-leverage situations upon his activation.

Rodriguez (elbow) threw a bullpen session Friday, Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Rodriguez appears to be in the initial phase of his throwing program after previously being shut down to rest the elbow injury. Assuming his subsequent bullpen sessions continue to present no issues, he'll likely be cleared to start facing hitters again.

Rodriguez (elbow) will be shut down for a few days, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Rodriguez underwent an MRI on Tuesday that showed no structural damage, so the team will simply give him a few days off before he resumes throwing. The hope is that he'll be able to return to the fold later this month.
