Cardinals' Duncan undergoes surgery for sports hernia

ST. LOUIS -- Cardinals outfielder Chris Duncan underwent
surgery on Thursday to repair a sports hernia and will miss the
rest of the season.

The team said Duncan's rehab should take about 10 weeks.

Duncan, who has had limited playing time this month, batted .259
with 21 homers and 70 RBIs in 127 games. He's the son of St. Louis
pitching coach Dave Duncan and brother of Yankees outfielder
Shelley Duncan, who also has a sports hernia.
