Jeferson Quero, the Brewers #3 prospect according to Major League Baseball’s rankings, will undergo surgery for a torn labrum in his right (throwing) shoulder, which will end his season. General Manager Matt Arnold reports that Quero’s expected recovery time is nine months, and that he should be fully ready for spring training next season.

It’s a tough break for the 21-year-old Quero, the top position player prospect in the Brewers’ minor league system. He injured the shoulder diving back to first base in his first—and only—game at Triple-A Nashville. Quero projects as a terrific defensive catcher, so the successful recovery of his throwing shoulder will be a major factor in his future value.
