MIAMI -- San Francisco Giants closer Robb Nen will have season-ending shoulder surgery Wednesday to repair a partial tear to his right rotator cuff.

The Giants said they sought medical opinions from the top sports medicine orthopedists in the country. The arthroscopic operation will take place in Wilmington, Del., and will be performed by Dr. Craig Morgan, the same doctor who performed similar surgery on Curt Schilling in 1999.

Nen's throwing shoulder has not responded to two operations over the past five months, including one on April 18, and an extensive rehabilitation program. He's expected to be ready for spring training in 2004.

Nen, a three-time All-Star and the Giants' career saves leader, had 43 saves last season to help the club get to the World Series for the first time since 1989. He had seven saves in the postseason.

It's a shame, good pitcher. Hopefully he's back to his old self again next year.
