John Maine will require surgery in the off-season to remove a bone spur on the back of his right shoulder according to the Daily News. He isn’t able to throw between starts now because of the pain but plans to pitch the rest of the season through the pain.
It’s been obvious for some time that Maine has a medical problem. He had soreness in his forearm and then his shoulder. His velocity has been way down and he just doesn’t look like the same type of pitcher over the last month plus.
