SAN DIEGO (AP) - 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.
