Glaus undergoes surgery

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Anaheim Angels third baseman Troy Glaus underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder Friday.

Glaus, who is on the 60-day disabled list, had surgery to repair the labrum and debride the rotator cuff of his right shoulder. He is expected to be reexamined in 10 to 14 days and then begin physical therapy. No timetable has been set to his return and he could miss the entire season.

When Glaus went on the DL, he was batting .296 with 11 homers and 28 RBI in 29 games.

Last year, Glaus played in just 91 games because of a shoulder injury that ended his season in July. He did not have surgery during the off-season.

The 27-year-old slugger had been relegated to designated hitter duties earlier this month because of the shoulder problem. He then injured his right knee during a May 11 game against the New York Yankees and was sent back to California to have both his knee and shoulder examined.

Tests revealed a sprained knee ligament and a strained right shoulder. Surgery was then recommended for the shoulder.

The MVP of the 2002 World Series, Glaus has 175 career homers and 501 RBI in 798 games. His home run total ranks fourth on the Angels' all-time list.
