New York Yankees right handed pitcher Michael Pineda will have surgery next week on his injured right shoulder and will miss the rest of the Major League Baseball season, the team said Wednesday.
In an article posted on the Yankees' website, general manager Brian Cashman said Pineda is expected to miss a full calendar year.
He has been diagnosed with an anterior labral tear of his right shoulder.
Pineda made the 2011 American League All-Star roster with Seattle.
