Izturis Requires Season-Ending Surgery
Maicer Izturis' season is done, and he will require season-ending surgery according to MLB.com.
An examination with Dr. Steve Shin in Los Angeles revealed that Izturis had a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb -- the webbing in between the thumb and pointer finger. The 27-year-old will have surgery on Tuesday at the Kerlin-Jobe Clinic in Los Angeles and should be ready for 2009 Spring Training.
