MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers announced today that shortstop J.J. Hardy will undergo season-ending surgery. The surgery will be performed this week in Milwaukee by head team physician Dr. William Raasch.

Hardy will undergo a retinacular repair to stabilize the peroneal tendon in his right ankle. The expected recovery time is three to four months.

Hardy was placed on the 15-day disabled list on May 17 with a severe sprain of the distal deltoid ligament of the right ankle, an injury he suffered on May 16 vs. Philadelphia while sliding into catcher Sal Fasano on a play at the plate.

Hardy batted .242 with 5 home runs and 14 RBI in 35 games this season.
