Spivey will see surgeon Thursday
The Brewers said Tuesday night that Spivey will fly to Los Angeles on Thursday to see prominent orthopedic surgeon Dr. Lewis Yocum. If Yocum recommends an operation, it will be performed Friday.
Spivey got hurt July 2 in Pittsburgh, and the Brewers placed him on the 15-day DL, saying he would miss two to four weeks.
Spivey is hitting .272 with seven homers and 28 RBIs in 59 games for the Brewers. He missed nearly three weeks with a strained hamstring earlier this season.
He was part of the blockbuster trade that sent slugger Richie Sexson to Arizona in the offseason. Sexson is out for the season after undergoing shoulder surgery last month.
