Lohse Underwent 'Fascial Release' Surgery Friday

Kyle Lohse had surgery Friday on his right forearm in Los Angeles, hoping to correct the “extreme compartmental syndrome” he was diagnosed with earlier this week.

Dr. Steven Shin, the same surgeon who performed Brendan Ryan’s late-offseason wrist surgery, operated on Lohse.

The right-handed pitcher had been bothered by lingering discomfort in his forearm since first injuring himself when he was hit by a pitch in May 2009.
The Cardinals did not announce any timetable for Lohse’s return to baseball, but according to a statement from the club, he will begin physical therapy in about one week.
