Dodgers closer Eric Gagne will have surgery Friday to remove a nerve from his pitching elbow - his second arm operation in less than a year - leaving his season in doubt. Dodgers trainer Stan Johnston said on a conference call Thursday night there was no immediate timetable for the return of Gagne, who saved 152 games from 2002-04 and was a near-unanimous winner of the NL Cy Young Award in 2003. "I wouldn't say that," Johnston replied when asked if Gagne might miss the entire season. "After the surgeons get finished, there will be a timetable."
