Red Sox’s Carson Smith To Undergo Season-Ending Shoulder Surgery

Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Carson Smith throws in the seventh inning during a baseball game against the Miami Marlins Tuesday

Smith suffered a subluxation of his right shoulder when he threw his glove in the dugout after allowing an eighth-inning homer to the Oakland Athletics' Khris Davis on May 14. The extent of the surgery and projected length of the recovery won't be known until the operation is underway and completed, but some labrum damage is known to be present. "Taking a pitcher out of the season and doing a shoulder surgery is not something anybody wants to do lightly".

Red Sox reliever Carson Smith will undergo shoulder surgery on Wednesday in NY and is nearly certain to miss the rest of the season, manager Alex Cora announced.

"There's firsts for everything", Pearson said.

After spending more than a year recovering from Tommy John surgery, Smith returned late last season and showed promise with his devastating slider and sinking two-seamer. "Differentiating what was new and what was old is something the surgeon will evaluate".

The woman claimed that she had managed to escape the apartment and flee to a nearby restaurant, where she called police. On Tuesday, blue tarps covered the apartment building's back windows where SWAT officers apparently had made entry.

The Sox can non-tender Smith after the season, making him a free agent.

"They're gonna go in and look at all the structures and fix everything they feel is necessary to add stability back to that shoulder so he can handle the rigors of pitching and throwing", Pearson said.

What made the already bad situation even worse is that Smith, while accepting responsibility for what you see above, suggested that heavy usage by Cora contributed to the injury. He has since had three opinions on the injury, with the consensus being that surgery was the necessary option. It's unfortunate that it happened. Sometimes most of the injuries happen on the awkward plays. In Pearson's eyes, Smith's shoulder was relatively healthy until the incident. "That was the consensus of all the doctors". Smith was also the third-least utilized reliever at the time of the injury, and the least utilized "regular" of Cora's bullpen.
