Pearce (elbow) underwent successful surgery Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pearce had to get the flexor mass tendon in his elbow operated on Wednesday, but everything went according to plan per the Orioles. Wednesday's procedure will obviously wipe out the rest of Pearce's season, but he could theoretically be ready for the start of the 2017 season.

Pearce is set to undergo surgery Wednesday in New York to repair the flexor mass tendon in his elbow, Rich Dubroff of CSN Mid Atlantic reports.

EDGE Analysis

As announced Sunday, Pearce will require surgery after a platelet-rich plasma injection failed to quell the discomfort in his elbow. Pearce's 2016 season is obviously over, and he'll now face a four-to-six-month recovery timetable, which should enable him to be back at close to full strength for the start of the 2017 campaign.

Pearce (elbow) was placed on the 60-day disabled list Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

A return for the 2016 campaign is now out of the question for Pearce, who will need surgery to repair his elbow. His goal of being ready by April of 2017 seems attainable, as the tentative timeframe for his recovery is 4-6 months following surgery. Pearce will finish the season with a .288/.374/.492 line and 13 home runs.

Pearce got a platelet-rich plasma injection in his elbow Wednesday, Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, the injection will knock Pearce out indefinitely, but manager Buck Showalter expressed optimism that the 33-year-old would be able to return in some capacity this season. With Pearce on the sideline for the foreseeable future, the Orioles are expected to select the contract of Paul Janish to add another infield bat to the roster.

Pearce will have his forearm examined Wednesday morning, CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Dubroff reports.

EDGE Analysis

He aggravated the injury on a throw in Monday's game, after initially dealing with forearm soreness at the end of August. The fact that he needs to have a second opinion on the injury suggests he might be worse off than day-to-day, and owners can therefore start looking at alternative options. There should be a more concrete diagnosis Wednesday.

Pearce is dealing with discomfort in his throwing elbow/forearm, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pearce said he aggravated the injury, which initially popped up at the end of August, on a throw to second base in Monday's game. While he and the team are hoping the soreness subsides within a day or two, Pearce acknowledged that he may undergo a second MRI. The first baseman is not in Tuesday's lineup and should be considered day-to-day in advance of Wednesday's matchup.

Pearce (elbow) went 1-for-3 with a solo homer as Baltimore's leadoff man Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Pearce proved that his elbow injury was minor, returning with a bang after missing just one game. He hit at the top of the order with Adam Jones (hamstring) out, and did his best impression of the power-hitting leadoff man with a game-tying solo shot in the fifth inning. The veteran has now homered in back-to-back games after hitting just one between Jul. 20 and Aug. 27.

EDGE Analysis

Pearce did not start Monday due to elbow soreness, but he will be back in the lineup Tuesday night. Pearce will man left field Tuesday, and with Adam Jones (hamstring) not yet ready to start, he will hit out of the top spot in the batting order.

Pearce (elbow) is available off the bench Monday against the Blue Jays, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Pearce is available to play in Monday's contest, manager Buck Showalter said that he'd rather save Pearce for Tuesday's matchup against the left-handed J.A. Happ. Pearce has a great .301/.380/.510 line for the season, but has been fantastic against lefties. When a southpaw is the mound, Pearce hits .329/.427/.643.

Pearce (elbow) is not in the lineup Monday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Pearce had a 3-for-4 showing in Sunday's victory over the Yankees, but he was forced out of the contest early after tweaking a lingering elbow injury. The 33-year-old typically doesn't occupy an everyday role with the Orioles, so it's possible his absence from the lineup isn't related to the injury, but he should be considered day-to-day regardless until he returns to the field.
