Tarik Skubal had flexor tendon surgery Wednesday in Los Angeles, the Detroit Tigers have announced.

"It was exploratory in nature. Dr. (Neal) ElAttrache went in and saw exactly what was ailing Tarik. It was successful, and that's the extent of the update that I know," A.J. Hinch said.

The Tigers shut Skubal down for the season on Saturday because of arm fatigue. Skubal, 25, last pitched Aug. 1.
