Braves pitcher Mike Minor underwent successful surgery to repair a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder Wednesday, the team announced.

Minor will miss the rest of the 2015 season with hopes of returning for spring training next year. He will be a non-tender free agent candidate in the off-season after winning $5.6 million in his arbitration case in February.

Atlanta placed Minor on the 60-day disabled list earlier this month. On May 2, Braves President of Baseball Operations John Hart told reporters that the team didn't see the left-hander "coming back anytime soon."

Minor missed parts of 2014 with shoulder injuries and was limited to 145 1/3 innings pitched. His shoulder discomfort continued into spring training this year, and he had yet to appear in a game.

VERDUCCI: Mets' staff is on historic pace—but will it be enough?

In five seasons with Atlanta, Minor, 27, has gone 38-36 with a career 4.10 ERA.
