Tokyo Yakult Swallows outfielder Lastings Milledge has undergone shoulder surgery and will miss the remainder of the season, the Central League club announced on Wednesday.

Milledge, who has been in the United States for detailed examinations on his injured right shoulder, was diagnosed with a damaged labrum and has had surgery. He will not be able to play for six months, essentially ruling him out for the rest of the season.
