Former Fort Wayne Wizards pitcher Cory Luebke, seen here in a 2008 game against South Bend, will miss the 2014 season because of reconstructive elbow surgery, the San Diego Padres have announced.

Ex-Wizard Cory Luebke to miss 2014 season

SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Padres say left-hander Cory Luebke will need a second reconstructive elbow surgery and will miss the 2014 season.

Luebke missed all of last season while rehabbing after having his first surgery in May 2012. An MRI exam last week showed a tear in the ulnar collateral ligament. He is 10-12 with a 3.25 ERA in parts of three seasons.

Luebke signed a $12 million, four-year contract in 2012. The deal has team options for 2016 and 2017 that could make the contract worth $27.75 million.
