OAKLAND -- Third baseman Brandon Inge underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder Thursday in Detroit, the A's announced Friday. Dr. Stephen Lemos, the Detroit Tigers' orthopedic surgeon, performed the operation to repair Inge's labrum. Inge will miss the remainder of the season, and there is no timetable for his return.
Inge went on the disabled list on Aug. 14, retroactive to Aug. 12, with a sprained right shoulder. He was reinstated Sept. 1 and went 1-for-2 with a double and two RBIs against Boston but left the game in the fourth inning after re-injuring his shoulder. He landed on the DL for the fourth time this season. In 74 games with the A's this year, the former Tiger hit .226 with 11 home runs, 52 RBIs and 31 runs scored.
