Heredia (shoulder) underwent successful surgery Monday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Heredia suffered the injury at the end of September and opted to undergo the procedure to repair a lesion in his non-throwing shoulder. He'll begin rehab right away and is expected to ready for spring training in March.
Heredia is expected to undergo surgery on his right shoulder, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Heredia wasn't expected to return this season, but there hadn't been any indication that he would require surgery up to this point. The specific details regarding the type of procedure are unknown at this point, but it's been said that there will be a lengthy rehab process once the surgery has been performed. However, the Mariners plan on having Heredia back in full health once spring training comes around. With Heredia out, Jacob Hannemann is starting in center field Wednesday.
Manager Scott Servais reported Tuesday that Heredia is dealing with a minor shoulder injury and likely won't play again this season, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Heredia started Sunday's contest against the Indians but has been withheld from the starting lineup the past two days. The Mariners will proceed with caution with the 26-year-old outfielder and sideline him for the final week of the season. He'll likely conclude the campaign with an underwhelming .249/.315/.337 line in 429 plate appearances and will have to battle for a starting outfield spot next season.
Heredia is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Athletics.
After starting 20 straight games, Heredia will head to the bench for a second consecutive contest. He's hit just .143/.211/.157 in 22 games this month while filling in for the injured Jarrod Dyson (groin), so it wouldn't be surprising for him to continue to miss out on at-bats over the final six games. In his place, Mitch Haniger will slide over to man center field, opening up a spot for Danny Valencia to start in right field.
Heredia is not in the lineup for Monday's game against he A's.
Heredia has struggled at the plate in September, hitting just .143/.211/.157 in 70 at-bats, so he'll get the day off to clear his head after starting 20 straight games. Jacob Hannemann will start in center field and bat ninth in his stead.
