Lowry Having Rib Removed

By  | 

SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Francisco Giants left-hander Noah Lowry was
scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday to remove the first rib on his
left side, due to symptoms from thoracic outlet syndrome.

The surgery to correct the circulatory problem was to be performed by Dr. Greg Pearl, a vascular surgeon at the Baylor Medical Center in Dallas.

The team said a prognosis for recovery won't be determined until after surgery.
