The Los Angeles Dodgers announced on Monday that their star pitcher, Walker Buehler, will not be available for the rest of the 2018 baseball season because he has scheduled surgery on his damaged elbow for later this month.

The Los Angeles Dodgers announced in a statement that the right-handed pitcher, who is 28 years old and throws right-handed, will have surgery on August 23.

Since early June, when he suffered a flexor strain in his right elbow, Buehler has been sidelined and has not participated in any games.

The ace pitcher finished the season with a record of 6-3, a 4.02 earned run average, 58 strikeouts, and 12 starts under his belt.

The Dodgers had high hopes that Buehler would be able to return to the rotation in time to participate in the postseason, but the pitcher will now have to endure season-ending surgery instead of fulfilling those hopes.

The high-flying Dodgers have compiled the greatest record in all of baseball so far this season, and they currently hold a 16-game lead in the National League West with a record of 79-34.
