Wichita State freshman pitcher Connor Lungwitz underwent shoulder surgery on Thursday and will not participate in fall practices, he said on Twitter.
Lungwitz, a right-hander from Maize, said the operation cleared out tissue in his shoulder and termed it a minor procedure. He expects to begin throwing in 4 to 6 weeks.
He went 6-1 with a 0.97 ERA as a senior with 74 strikeouts and 11 walks in 65 innings. Detroit drafted him in the 35th round in June.
