Astros.MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports former Houston Astros 1B Jeff Bagwell will undergo major surgery on his right shoulder Monday, Feb. 1. Bagwell hopes the surgery will allow him to live pain-free and avoid potential total shoulder replacement. "They'll shave the ball of my arm down to a perfect circle, then drill a hole in the middle of it and stick a metal half ball on top of it and it should give me the perfect circle to where it's supposed to fit," Bagwell said. "It's getting worse. I'm getting more bone spurs that are pressing against the rotator cuff. It's time for me to do something. If this doesn't work, then I'm going to have to get a total shoulder replacement. We'll see if this works."
