The Swallows announced today that Lastings Milledge had surgery after he was diagnosed with a right shoulder injury (右肩関節・上方関節唇損傷 = SLAP tear?).  He will require about six months for a full recovery.  He is not expected to return to Japan this season and will focus on his rehab in the United States.
