Fukuoka Softbank Hawks right-hander Brian Wolfe will undergo elbow surgery and will miss the rest of the season, the Pacific League announced Saturday.

Wolfe, who is 4-2 with a 3.04 ERA in eight games, suffered damage to the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow and will undergo Tommy John surgery to replace the damaged ligament. It will take the 33-year-old from 12 to 14 months to recover.
