Cleveland Indians outfielder Bradley Zimmer underwent arthroscopic surgery to his right shoulder on Friday, the team announced Saturday.

The procedure was performed by Dr. Keith Meister in Dallas to repair a torn labrum. The team revealed that Zimmer's projected timeline for a return to full baseball activities is eight to 12 months.

Zimmer, 25, had been expected to be a mainstay in center field for the Indians this season, but he has had a limited impact because of injuries and ineffectiveness. He missed 20 games in May after suffering bruised ribs when he slammed into the outfield wall at Yankee Stadium trying to run down a double by Austin Romine.

Zimmer's struggles at the plate continued after he returned, and he was sent to Triple-A Columbus on June 5. He was later placed on the minor league disabled list on June 16 when he hurt his shoulder during a workout with Columbus.

In 34 games with the Indians this season, the former top prospect hit .226 with two home runs and nine RBIs. Zimmer hit .241 with eight homers, 39 RBIs and 18 stolen bases in 101 games as a rookie in 2017.
