Adam LaRoche had surgery this morning to repair what proved to be a sizable tear of the labrum inside his left shoulder, a procedure that will sideline the Nationals first baseman the rest of the season but should give him enough time to fully recover before spring training.

Tom Gorzelanny’s recovery from elbow inflammation, combined with Yunesky Maya’s inefficient performance, has given the Nationals reason to make a change to their rotation.
