(TSX / STATS) -- The Los Angeles Angels received mixed news Monday on the injury front involving two of their starting pitchers.

Left-hander Andrew Heaney underwent an MRI exam that revealed no acute strain in his shoulder, but right-hander Alex Meyer will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a labral tear in his right shoulder, according to Angels general manager Billy Eppler.

Heaney is questionable to make his next start after exiting Saturday night's loss to Seattle due to tightness in his shoulder. Eppler said the exam showed symptoms more consistent with internal impingement.

The 26-year-old Heaney is 1-2 with a 7.06 ERA in six starts this season. He underwent Tommy John surgery in July 2016 and did not make his season debut until last month.

Meyer, 27, has been sidelined since July 19, when he beat the Washington Nationals by tossing seven scoreless innings of one-hit ball. He went on the disabled list six days later.

Eppler said Meyer discussed his options with team physicians before deciding to have the surgical procedure, which will be performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache.

Meyer finishes the season with a 4-5 record and 3.74 ERA in 13 starts.
