Fantasy Pickups of the Week:

Padres' Moseley might have surgery in May

The SportsXchange

San Diego Padres right-hander Dustin Moseley could have season-ending surgery on his right shoulder May 2 in New York City.

Moseley will fly east next weekend and consult with Dr. David Altchek on April 30. If Altchek and the pitcher agree, Moseley will either have the surgery the following day or return to San Diego for further rehabilitation.

Dr. Altchek is an orthopedic surgeon and the Medical Director of the New York Mets.

Moseley confirmed Friday that he has suffered a tear to the capsule as well as the labrum in his right shoulder.

Moseley said he will not make a final decision on surgery until talking with Dr. Altchek.

Moseley hasn't pitched since his first start of the season on April 7. He was working in the fifth inning when he felt something pop in his shoulder while pitching to Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp.

"I looked at the scoreboard and saw: 'Changeup, 84 mph,' " said Moseley. "I had just thrown a fastball."
