Maroth out 2-3 months after surgery
The team said Dr. Lewis Yocum performed arthroscopic surgery on Maroth, 28, in California on Friday and called the procedure a success. The Tigers, currently leading the American League Central, hope to have him back at full strength in September for a possible run at the playoffs.
Maroth was 5-2 with a 3.56 ERA in nine starts before being placed on the 15-day disabled list a week ago. That came after a poor start against the Kansas City Royals, in which Maroth retired only one batter in a six-run first inning and allowed three home runs.
