The Plain Dealer reports that Indians reliever Hector Ambriz, who has been troubled by elbow surgery all season, will undergo Tommy John ligament replacement surgery and miss most, if not all, of next season.

Ambriz, a 26-year-old right-hander, was picked up by the Indians from Arizona in last winter's Rule 5 draft. He made 34 appearances, posting a 5.59 ERA. Ambriz first reported elbow trouble in spring training and went on the disabled list at the start of the season. On September 21 he was shut down, and after consulting with Dr. Lewis Yocum, it was decided he needed the surgery, which will take place Friday.
