The Angels announced on Tuesday that starter C.J. Wilson will undergo season-ending surgery on his left shoulder to “address fraying on the labrum and rotator cuff.” Dr. Neal ElAttrache will perform the surgery next week in Los Angeles.
Wilson, 35, hasn’t pitched this season due to shoulder problems. He attempted to fix the issue through rehab, but suffered a setback which led him to opt for surgery.
Wilson is in the final year of a five-year, $77.5 million contract, so he can become a free agent after the season. He’ll likely be looking at one- or two-year deals from interested teams this off-season.
