ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Angels slugger Troy Glaus, a three-time All-Star who has hit an AL-leading 11 home runs in just 108 at-bats, will have surgery on his right shoulder Friday and be sidelined for at least two months.
Glaus was limited to 91 games last season because of a shoulder injury he sustained while trying to make a diving catch. He was taken out of the lineup in New York on Wednesday after apparently hurting his shoulder a night earlier in his last at-bat against the Yankees.
The surgery will be performed by Angels team physician Dr. Lewis Yocum to repair fraying of the labrum and rotator cuff, and Glaus will be placed on the 60-day disabled list, the team said Monday.
Glaus, 27, was hitting .296 with 29 runs scored and 28 RBIs. Twenty of his 32 hits were for extra bases, and he reached double figures in home runs in his 24th game -- fastest in club history.
The third overall selection in the 1997 amateur draft, Glaus hit an AL-leading 47 homers in 2000. He was the MVP of the 2002 World Series, when he hit .385 with three homers and eight RBIs to lead the Angels past the San Francisco Giants in seven games.
Glaus has a career batting average of .254 with 175 homers and 501 RBIs in 798 games. His homer total is the fourth-highest in franchise history.
