A doctor quoted in the Globe said it could be 6-9 months, which is consistent with Bloom's more pessimistic assessment. I also saw our resident docs estimated timeline that is a bit sooner. But we should all acknowledge that recovery from significant elbow surgery is never an exact science. There can be a lot of variation, and a single setback could easily turn 6 months (which would be around the All Star Break) to 8, which would put Story's return in September.
