Brian Bruney Injury: White Sox Reliever Has Season-Ending Surgery

Chicago White Sox reliever Brian Bruney underwent hip surgery on Monday, the team announced. The procedure will end the right-hander's season.

Bruney started the season with the White Sox's Triple-A affiliate in Charlotte and was called up to the big league roster in late June. After making one appearance, in which he pitched a scoreless 10th inning of relief against the Milwaukee Brewers and picked up the win, the 30-year-old reliever was placed on the 15-day disabled list with hip irritation. After nearly two months on the DL and following a rehab start in which he threw just 11 pitches, Bruney's 2012 season has come to an end.

The team had previously recalled Jesse Crain from the disabled list to fill Bruney's place on the active roster. No further move is anticipated.
