The news on Andrew Bailey went from bad to worse as the Sox would-be closer will undergo thumb surgery tomorrow in Cleveland.

The team announced after today's game against the Nationals that Bailey will undergo surgery to reconstruct the ulnar collateral ligament in his right thumb. Manager Bobby Valentine said he will be out until after the All-Star break.

Bailey was examined in Boston yesterday, and he got a second opinion today in Cleveland from Dr. Thomas Graham, who will perform the surgery.

The origin of Bailey's thumb injury has been a matter of great speculation since it was revealed.
