Morton visits clubhouse week after elbow surgery
PITTSBURGH -- Other than the huge, padded cast on his right arm and bandages on his left leg -- from where the tendon was taken and transplanted into his right elbow during Tommy John surgery last week -- Charlie Morton looked great.

"I'm dealing with it OK emotionally," Morton said in the Pirates' PNC Park clubhouse early Thursday afternoon. "It will be a long, slow process. But it will be all right."

Morton will begin that arduous comeback process this weekend. He is due to depart on Sunday for Bradenton, Fla., to begin the preliminary part of his rehab at Pirate City. The stitches from his elbow are expected to come out in about a week, at which point he will be able to slightly step up his activity.
