After having shoulder surgery last week in California, Houston Astros pitcher Aaron Sanchez‘s recovery will reportedly take him into next season, according to MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart.

Sanchez, who underwent surgery to repair an injury to his throwing shoulder, was already ruled out for the remainder of this season.

The 27-year-old had been out of the Astros lineup since Aug. 20 with what the team said was a sore right pectoral muscle.

Sanchez was acquired by Houston in a trade with the Toronto Blue Jays on July 31, and in his first start combined with three relievers to throw a no-hitter on Aug. 3.

In 131.1 innings pitched for both the Blue Jays and Astros, Sanchez posted a 5.89 ERA to go along with a 1.62 WHIP.
