Description: Pirates starter Charlie Morton will be out the next six-to-eight months after undergoing surgery to repair the labrum in his right hip on Friday according to Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review.
Insight: Morton was hoping to stick out the hip injury until the end of the season, but he will officially miss the playoffs at this point. He did return for one start a couple weeks ago and threw five scoreless innings. Morton had the same surgery in October of 2011 and missed the first two weeks of 2012, so his Opening Day status is in doubt.

He worked around lead off doubles in the fourth and fifth to keep Boston off the board. Morton has elected not to receive surgery until after the year and will gut out the rest of the season.
