Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Javy Guerra underwent
arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder, reports Steve Dilbeck of the Los
Yep, injury No. 3 in Guerra’s
troubled season emerged when the Dodgers announced Friday he had undergone
arthroscopic right shoulder surgery.
Guerra went through a 25-minute procedure which cleaned up
the bursitis he was dealing with in his AC joint. The right-hander will be able
to begin a throwing program in six weeks and should be good to go by the time
spring training rolls around.
The surgery caps Guerra’s injury-plagued season. The 27-year-old
missed time this year due to a knee injury, which required surgery, and an
oblique injury, which ended his season. His shoulder didn’t cause him to miss
time, as it was something the right-hander pitched through.
Guerra entered the season as the Dodgers’ closer, and he
posted an ERA and WHIP of 2.60 and 1.489 over 45 appearances. Despite his solid
ERA, he was sent back to Triple-A for a short stint because of his command
issues (4.6 BB/9).
