"That’s not what I wanted to hear," LaRoche told "I wish it didn’t take me 43 games to figure out something was totally wrong."

CBS notes that LaRoche will first try to simply rest his shoulder for two or three weeks before deciding if he’ll go the surgery route or not.

"Hopefully a miracle happens so we can get it playable," he told "If not, I’m not going to milk it here and hope for the best. If this doesn’t work, I’m pretty sure I’ll make the decision to get it fixed."
