Cards Kyle McClellan undergoes season-ending shoulder surgery

Quote:
Kyle McClellan has been on the disabled list since mid-May with a strained elbow, but Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that the Cardinals right-hander recently underwent season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder.

As recently as six weeks ago doctors told McClellan that he could avoid elbow surgery and rest the injury instead, but according to Hummel doctors now believe the elbow pain actually stemmed from “the arm compensating for the tear and irritation in the shoulder.”

So it’s not quite as if he suffered the shoulder injury while trying to come back from the elbow injury, but … well, that probably doesn’t make McClellan or the Cardinals feel any better about the whole situation. McClellan had been hoping to return next month, but instead he’ll miss the rest of this season and likely the first half of next season.

Prior to struggling this season McClellan threw 359 innings with a 3.61 ERA for the Cardinals, primarily working out of the bullpen.
