Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that Jon Garland underwent season-ending surgery on his right shoulder earlier today. The procedure consisted of clean up of the labrum and bursa and clean up and reinforcement of the rotator cuff.
Garland will begin physical therapy later this week, but is expected to be sidelined for the next six months.
Garland’s one-year, $5 million contract with the Dodgers included a $12 million option for 2012 that would have vested had he logged 190 innings and was not on the disabled list in September due to an arm injury, but he threw a career-low 54 innings over nine starts before landing on the DL in early June. The 31-year-old right-hander will head into free agency again this winter and will almost certainly have to accept an incentive-laden deal to continue his career.
