The Twins have announced that starter Scott Baker will miss the 2012 season to surgically repair his right elbow. The flexor pronator tendon in his elbow needs to be fixed, and the recovery time for such an operation is six months.
The Twins on Monday allowed starting pitcher Scott Baker to become a free agent after they told him that the team will not pick up his $9.25 million option for 2013, the Star Tribune reports.
Scott Baker missed the majority of the final two months last season because of elbow problems, and he missed his scheduled start Thursday because of another sore elbow. Twins GM Terry Ryan says this is a "standard thing that happens to him every spring." Baker is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Saturday.

Scott Baker left his rehab start for Class A Fort Myers Thursday night after recording just one out in the first inning.
