Spivey will see surgeon Thursday

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Junior Spivey might need season-ending surgery on his left shoulder, which he injured sliding headfirst into first base.

The Brewers said Tuesday night that Spivey will fly to Los
Angeles on Thursday to see prominent orthopedic surgeon Dr. Lewis
Yocum. If Yocum recommends an operation, it will be performed

Spivey got hurt July 2 in Pittsburgh, and the Brewers placed him on the 15-day DL, saying he would miss two to four weeks.

Spivey is hitting .272 with seven homers and 28 RBIs in 59 games for the Brewers. He missed nearly three weeks with a strained
hamstring earlier this season.

He was part of the blockbuster trade that sent slugger Richie
Sexson to Arizona in the offseason. Sexson is out for the season
after undergoing shoulder surgery last month.
