The Braves have lost the man who was expected to lead the team in saves this season. Arodys Vizcaino will undergo season-ending surgery on his right shoulder.
Around 4 pm ET on Wednesday the Braves released a statement that the reliever had the surgery done in New York, NY, by Dr. David Altchek.
Dr. Altchek cleaned up Vizcaino’s labrum while also removing scar tissue from his shoulder join.
The 28-year-old had been placed on the 10-day injured list on April 14. He pitched just four innings this season allowing one run.
