Ex-Tigers mainstay Brandon Inge is set to have season-ending shoulder surgery and will miss Oakland's series in Detroit.

Former Detroit Tigers third baseman and current Oakland Athletics utility man Brandon Inge will have season-ending shoulder surgery just weeks before Oakland is set to take on the Tigers in Detroit. Inge was activated from the disabled list on Sept. 1 after missing about three weeks, but he felt his shoulder pop out during this past Saturday's game against the Boston Red Sox. Inge stayed in the game and hit a two-run double in the bottom of the inning, but he was removed shortly thereafter.

Inge said he won't have surgery for another week, and that he would be available to DH or pinch hit until then. Inge will rejoin the team to rehab his shoulder after the operation. Inge, who has hit .226 in 74 games with Oakland in 2012, says that he hopes to be back with the A's in 2013.
