The Braves announced on Wednesday that closer Arodys Vizcaíno underwent season-ending surgery on his right shoulder. The procedure cleaned up the right-hander’s labrum and removed scar tissue from the shoulder joint.
Vizcaíno initially landed on the 10-day injured list on April 14 (retroactive to the 11th) due to inflammation in his right shoulder.
Vizcaíno, 28, appeared in four games this season, yielding one run on three hits and three walks with six strikeouts across four innings. A.J. Minter figures to be next in line to serve as the closer.
