Hart to have surgery Tuesday
Right-hander Kevin Hart will have surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in Hart’s right shoulder.
The procedure was recommended by the Pirates’ director Dr. Patrick DeMeo last week and confirmed by Dr. James Andrews on Monday. Hart had traveled to Birmingham, Ala., to get a second opinion on the diagnosis.
Dr. Andrews will perform the surgery on Tuesday morning. Players undergoing this type of a procedure typically have eight-to-10 months recovering period. The Pirates remain optimistic that Hart will be ready to pitch by the start of Spring Training.
