Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson headed for season-ending elbow surgery
As expected, Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson will miss the remainder of the season after he undergoes elbow surgery to remove bone spurs.
Angels manager Mike Scioscia made the announcement during Thursday's pregame media session in Kansas City.
The left-handed hurler should, however, be good to go when spring training opens in 2016 in Tempe, Ariz.
It's not the first time Wilson has dealt with bone spurs during his career, but Scioscia said, the best option was surgery.
"This has been his (Wilson's) decision, and the medical staff's decision, the whole way," Scioscia added. "It was nothing that we pushed on him or talked to him about."
