BALTIMORE (AP) -Orioles outfielder Jay Gibbons was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, one day before undergoing season-ending surgery on his injured shoulder.
Gibbons, who has a torn labrum, will have an operation Tuesday in Cincinnati. The surgery will be performed by Cincinnati Reds medical director Dr. Timothy Kremchek.
Gibbons batted .230 with six home runs and 28 RBIs in 84 games for Baltimore this season. He completed his season by striking out as a pinch-hitter on Sunday against Boston.
The 30-year-old Gibbons said the injury occurred a few months ago when he was diving for a ball in left field.
``Well, obviously it's frustrating, this whole year, and then to have it end like this is not fun,'' Gibbons said Saturday. ``Especially since I was having a lot of fun with the guys here, and we were playing pretty good ball as of late.''
The Orioles did not immediately announce Gibbons' replacement on the 25-man roster.
Gibbons was batting .202 on July 6 before hitting safely in 14 of 19 games.
