The SportsXchange

Texas Rangers starting pitcher Matt Harrison, already declared out for the season, is having his third surgery of the year.

Harrison has thoracic outlet syndrome in his non-throwing right shoulder. He is schedule to have surgery to repair the issue on Monday. He also had the procedure on his left shoulder in 2009.

"I'm trying to set a record for surgeries in a year," Harrison told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "When I had it on the left side, I was full recovery in two-and-a-half months, and this is an arm I don't use to throw."

He is expected to be healthy by spring training.

Harrison also had two back surgeries earlier this season, which put him out for the year.

Harrison, 27, was 0-2 with an 8.44 ERA in two starts this season.
