Glen Perkins will miss rest of 2016 season | MLB.com

MINNEAPOLIS — Twins closer Glen Perkins will miss the rest of the season after suffering a labrum tear to his left shoulder, manager Paul Molitor confirmed before Thursday’s game against the Yankees. Perkins, who saw Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Southern California for a second opinion this week after undergoing an MRI exam on Monday, will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery to repair his labrum. The three-time American League All-Star made two appearances this season, coming on April 9-10, before going on the disabled list with a left shoulder strain. Perkins met with Twins physician Dr. John Steubs and general manager Terry Ryan on Thursday, and it was decided Perkins will have the surgery in the next seven to 10 days and it will be performed by Dr. ElAttrache.
