"He said there was some scar tissue in there and they gave him an injection to break that up to give him a little bit of relief," Lovullo said. "He's going to have some downtime. Once we get back from the [All-Star] Break, we'll look to ramp him up and get him back on the field. For right now, rest is the most important thing for him."

The MRI, according to Lovullo, did not show any structural damage in the surgically repaired area.

"It's just that there's some scar tissue that is causing that irritation," Lovullo said.
