Houston Astros outfielder Michael Brantley underwent season
ending shoulder surgery on Friday, the team announced.
The five-time MLB All-Star received an arthroscopic labral procedure to repair
an injury to his non-throwing right arm.
Brantley, 35, joined the Astros' injured list on June 27.
The injury was officially listed as a "shoulder trouble".
Through 64 games this season,
Brantley scored five home runs and 26 RBIs at a batting average of .288.
His most recent All-Star appearance came in 2021 - his third season with the Astros.
Brantley is in the second year of his two-year, $32 million contract with Houston.
He will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season.
The Astros have one of the best records in baseball,
leading the NL West with a 72–41 record in the year.
Houston will begin its homestand tonight at 8:10 p.m. against the Oakland A. ET.
