OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Oakland Athletics left-hander Josh Outman
has undergone ligament replacement surgery on his pitching elbow,
ending his season.

Dr. James Andrews performed the procedure, often called Tommy John surgery. Outman went 4-1 with a 3.48 ERA this season in 14
appearances, including 12 starts. Outman also had a bone spur removed.

The surgery typically requires a year or more of rehabilitation. Prospective A's closer Joey Devine underwent the same procedure in
April, and Oakland reliever Dan Giese also underwent elbow surgery
earlier this season.

A's right-hander Justin Duchscherer, a two-time All-Star, resumed a throwing program Tuesday after undergoing elbow surgery in March.
