Danny Salazar has struggled to progress with his shoulder injury, so the team is taking a precautionary step.
The Indians right-hander is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder Monday, the team announced Saturday.
There is no timetable for his return, though the team will be better able to determine a plan for his rehabilitation after the procedure.
Salazar, who has been on the disabled list all season, had an MRI and received a cortisone shot in May before resuming his throwing program. Still, manager Terry Francona hinted Friday that something still isn’t right with his shoulder.
Salazar, 28, hasn’t been healthy since the first half of the 2016 season but avoided arbitration by signing a one-year contract worth $5 million during the offseason.
