 DETROIT (AP) -Tigers designated hitter Gary Sheffield will have shoulder surgery Monday but is expected to be ready for the start of spring training.
Sheffield was examined Thursday in Miami, where it was decided surgery was necessary. He has had surgery on the shoulder twice, most recently in 1995.
Sheffield played through most of the second half of last season with soreness in the right shoulder, missing the first week of August and going on the disabled list for two weeks later in the month.
The 38-year-old appeared in 133 games for Detroit in 2007, batting .265 with 25 home runs, 75 runs batted in and 107 runs scored. He is signed with the Tigers through 2009.
