Hawkins undergoes shoulder surgery

Brewers reliever LaTroy Hawkins underwent season-ending shoulder surgery in Los Angeles on Friday with Dr. Lewis Yocum, who debrided — or cut frayed tissue away from — Hawkins’ labrum and rotator cuff. Hawkins shoulder will be immobilized for seven days before he begins physical therapy at home in Dallas. 

No word yet on whether the procedure would affect Hawkins’ preparation for 2011. He signed a two-year, $7.5 million contract with the Brewers in December.
