This is a kind of surprising leak because the Ms FO is consistently closed-mouthed about any of it's business.
I doubt there is anything performance altering with his elbow. This likely will just result in the back end of the deal being restructured a bit to allow the Ms to mitigate risk associated with giving a pitcher such a long contract.
