 MIAMI (AP) -Florida Marlins right-hander Anibal Sanchez will miss the rest of the season after undergoing an operation Thursday that repaired a torn labrum in his pitching shoulder.
The injury was discovered during exploratory arthroscopic surgery performed by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala. Sanchez will wait three to four months before he can resume throwing, the Marlins said.
As a rookie last season, the Venezuelan pitched the first no-hitter in the major leagues in 2 1/2 years when he beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-0 on Sept. 6. He went 10-3 with a 2.83 ERA in 2006, including a 5-1 record in September.
But Sanchez nursed a sore shoulder during the offseason and made only six starts this year, going 2-1 with a 4.80 ERA while allowing 43 hits and 19 walks in 30 innings. He was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on May 4 and then said his shoulder had been bothering him.
He hasn't pitched since.
The Marlins' vaunted young rotation has been plagued by injuries this season. Elbow trouble has limited right-handers Josh Johnson and Ricky Nolasco to five starts between them. Right-hander Sergio Mitre spent time on the disabled list because of a blister, and left-hander Dontrelle Willis left his start Tuesday against the Chicago White Sox after one inning because of a tight left forearm.
