According to Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com, Luke Scott will undergo surgery tomorrow to repair the torn labrum in his right shoulder. He is looking a recovery period of several months, but is expected to be ready in time for spring training.
Scott went 0-for-3 in his return from the disabled list Friday night, but was immediately shut down after feeling more discomfort. He ruled himself out for the season over the weekend and ultimately opted for surgery after getting a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews. Apparently he wanted to see the long form test results.
Scott batted just .220/.301/.402 with nine homers and 22 RBI in 236 plate appearances this season. The 33-year-old is making $6.4 million in 2011 and is eligible for arbitration again this winter, so he’s a pretty solid bet to be non-tendered.
