Dr. Keith Meister, team physician for the Texas Rangers, will do the surgery. Meister examined Salazar's shoulder in May and gave him a PRP injection. At the time Meister confirmed the Indians' diagnosis that Salazar was suffering from right shoulder impingement tendinitis.
Salazar, at the end of May, came to Cleveland for an MRI and more tests on the shoulder. He received a cortisone shot and was sent back to Goodyear, Ariz., to resume his throwing program.
