Joel Hanrahan to undergo season-ending surgery

Red Sox closer Joel Hanra­han will undergo season-ending surgery, likely late this week, to repair the flexor tendon in his right arm. Recovery time will be 6-9 months.

The possibility also exists that the 31-year-old, who was acquired in an offseason trade with the Pirates, might need Tommy John surgery.
