Hanrahan needs season-ending surgery

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - Red Sox closer Joel Hanrahan needs season-ending surgery on his right forearm.

The 31-year old right-hander said Saturday the operation likely will be performed by Dr. James Andrews, probably next week.
 
Hanrahan walked off the mound in the ninth inning of Monday's 6-5, 11-inning win over Minnesota after throwing a pitch.
 
Obtained from Pittsburgh in an offseason trade, the two-time All-Star is making $7.04 million this year and is eligible for free agency after the World Series. He is 0-1 with a 9.82 ERA in nine games and was on the disabled list from April 14 to May 7 with a strained right hamstring.
