Angels’ Dickson Out for Season
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) _ Jason Dickson, sidelined for the entire 1999 season after an operation on his right shoulder, had arthroscopic surgery on the same shoulder Tuesday and will miss the rest of the season.
The 27-year-old Dickson was 2-2 with a 6.11 ERA in six starts and 28 innings this year. He originally was placed on the disabled list because of soreness in his shoulder on April 30, then went on the DL again May 19 when he continued to feel pain when he threw.
Dickson was 13-9 with a 4.29 ERA for the Angels in 1997, his first full season in the majors, and had a 10-10 record in 1998.
The right-hander had surgery for a torn labrum, the rim-shaped structure in the shoulder joint, in March 1999. The arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday revealed additional labrum damage, which was repaired.
Dickson, who has a 24-23 career record and 4.90 ERA, is expected to be ready to pitch again when the Angels report to camp next spring, according to Angels physician Dr. Lewis Yocum.
