Default John Baker (FL MARLINS) had surgery today

MIAMI (AP) Florida Marlins catcher John Baker will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair an injury to his throwing elbow that sidelined him for most of this season, meaning he might not play again until 2012.
Dr. James Andrews will perform the reconstructive surgery Friday, the Marlins said.

Baker has been sidelined since May 12 and had hoped to return this year, but he endured repeated setbacks in rehabilitation. He played in only 23 games and batted .218.

Reserve infielder Donnie Murphy underwent surgery Thursday to repair a dislocated right wrist. He was injured making a tumbling catch in Wednesday's win over Washington.

Murphy was recalled from the minors in July and gave the Marlins a spark with two walk-off hits.
