BOSTON (CBS/AP) — Red Sox reliever Andrew Bailey will have season-ending right shoulder surgery this week.
Manager John Farrell said before Sunday night’s game against the Yankees that Bailey’s surgery will be performed by Mets team physician Dr. David Altchek on Wednesday in New York.
Bailey was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday night with a strained shoulder.
The reliever missed almost all of last season after right thumb surgery during spring training and posted six saves for the Red Sox. This year, the 29-year-old played in 30 games for Boston, registering eight saves.
The A’s drafted the right-hander in the 2006 amateur draft. He made his major league debut with Oakland in 2009.
