[January 23, 2009]  ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Cardinals third baseman Troy Glaus is expected to be sidelined for three months after arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder.

Glaus will begin physical therapy next week following Wednesday's surgery in Los Angeles. The 32-year-old hit .270 with 27 homers and 99 RBIs last season, his first with the Cardinals.

Glaus finished in the top 10 ten among NL third basemen in RBIs, doubles, home runs and slugging percentage last year. He set a Cardinals team record for fielding percentage (.982) by a third baseman, a mark that led the league.

Glaus has a career batting average of .258, with 304 homers and 877 RBIs in 10-plus seasons with Anaheim, Arizona, Toronto and St. Louis.
