Oakland Athletics third baseman Brandon Inge is expected to undergo what will be season-ending surgery on his right shoulder this week, reports Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle:

"My damn shoulder came out again," said Inge, who felt the shoulder pop out of place in Chicago on Aug. 11 and came off the disabled list Saturday. "I gave it my best shot. I knew it was going to be rough coming into it."

Inge’s shoulder previously came out of place during an August 8 contest against the Chicago White Sox. Saturday was the 35-year-old’s first game off the disabled list following his initial injury, and it’s expected to mark his final game of the season. The procedure Inge is set to undergo has an estimated recovery time of six months.

Inge has hit at a combined clip of .218/.275/.383 with the Detroit Tigers and A’s this season, and hit .226/.286/.389 with thirteen doubles and eleven home runs after signing with Oakland.
