Texas Ranger outfielder Jose Canseco is out for the season after he underwent surgery on his right elbow Friday in what doctors termed a successful procedure.
The surgery was performed in Los Angeles by Frank Jobe and John Conway, the Rangers’ orthopedic consultant.
The 90-minute procedure involved removing a tendon from Canseco’s right forearm to use as a graft to reconstruct a torn ligament.
Canseco was injured during a May 29 game, when he pitched against the Boston Red Sox. A few days later, he complained of a sore arm and back problems.
