Left-hander Teddy Higuera of the Milwaukee Brewers, who signed a four-year contract for $13 million in December, will be sidelined indefinitely after tests Wednesday revealed a torn rotator cuff.
An arthrogram examination disclosed the injury in Higuera’s throwing shoulder. General Manager Harry Dalton said Higuera will require rehabilitation.
Higuera complained Tuesday of soreness that was originally thought to be tendinitis. He has had injury problems for two seasons and began reporting soreness March 2.
