Zimmer (shoulder) underwent surgery on his right shoulder Friday to repair his labrum and is looking at an 8-to-12-month recovery timetable, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
The fact Zimmer underwent shoulder surgery was already known, but there was no prior indication the issue was as severe as the end result. The 25-year-old first suffered the shoulder injury in mid-June and was diagnosed with inflammation following an MRI, and he subsequently received an anti-inflammatory injection to address the issue. The specifics of the labrum issue remain unclear, but Zimmer will be sidelined for the rest of 2018 and may not be ready for Opening Day 2019 even if he's back on the field in eight months, as he'd still miss at least some of spring training.

Manager Terry Francona didn't provide any additional details on Zimmer's procedure besides the fact that Dr. Keith Meister performed the operation in Texas. A timetable and recovery plan should come to light within the next couple days, though it's expected that Zimmer will be sidelined through the month of August. He initally hit the minor-league DL after suffering the injury in mid-June.

Zimmer sustained the shoulder injury June 13 and has since been battling inflammation that put him on the minor-league disabled list. The 25-year-old will miss at least four weeks and could be held out through early August.
Zimmer will undergo an MRI on his right shoulder Monday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Zimmer is on the minor-league disabled list after suffering a shoulder injury Wednesday. He has experienced lingering discomfort, leading to the need for more tests. More should be known about the severity of his injury after the MRI.
Zimmer (shoulder) was placed on the minor-league disabled list Saturday, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.
Zimmer was originally expected to miss just five days due to a right shoulder injury that he suffered during batting practice earlier in the week, but the issue apparently isn't healing as quickly as the team hoped. The move is backdated to Wednesday, so he'll be eligible to return June 20 should he prove ready. Zimmer, who was optioned to Triple-A Columbus earlier in the month, was slashing just .111/.158/.278 through four games with the Clippers prior to suffering the injury.
