Texas Rangers starting pitcher Brandon Webb, who has made one major league appearance since 2008, has elected to have rotator cuff surgery on his injured right shoulder.

Webb will have the season-ending procedure August 1 by Dr. Keith Meister.

A three-time All-Star while with Arizona and the 2006 NL Cy Young Award winner, the 32-year-old Webb was working on a one-year, $3 million contract. He was signed by the Rangers as a free agent last winter.
