Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora told reporters on Tuesday that Whitlock will undergo arthroscopic hip surgery next week in New York. The right-hander spent some time on the injured list earlier in the campaign with a hip problem and played through right hip soreness after returning from IL in mid-July. He is expected to be ready for spring training in 2023.

Whitlock, 26, rose to fame with the Red Sox in 2021 as the most reliable bullpen player. After stealing a Rule 5 draft from the New York Yankees, Whitlock posted a 1.96 ERA and 1.10 BOOK with 81 strikeouts in 46 games during his rookie year.

Whitlock has made 31 appearances for Boston this season, including nine as a starter. He finishes with a 3.45 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in 78 1/3 innings.

The Red Sox’s 2022 schedule has 16 games left.
