Florida Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez will undergo shoulder surgery that will end his season.
Dr. Lee Kaplan, the team's physician, recommended surgery to correct instability in Ramirez's left shoulder, the Marlins announced.
Ramirez had an MRI exam performed Wednesday and met with Kaplan to decide what action to take.
No date has been set for the surgery, and that might be because the type of surgery has not yet been determined. The Miami Herald reported that it has not been decided whether Ramirez will undergo arthroscopic or open surgery. Further testing might be needed to reach a decision.
