Diamondbacks' Brandon Webb has season-ending shoulder surgery

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK -- Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon Webb is done for the season after having shoulder surgery.

Webb's right shoulder was cleaned up yesterday by Texas Rangers physician Dr. Keith Meister. Arizona manager A.J. Hinch says he heard the surgery went well and Webb should be able to play catch in three to four months.

Webb hasn't pitched since opening day. The 2006 Cy Young Award winner is 87-62 with a 3.27 ERA over 199 games in seven seasons.

The surgery complicates Arizona's decision on exercising its club option on Webb for 2010.

The deadline is shortly after the end of the World Series.
