Houston, AZ (Sports Network) - Arizona outfielder Luis Gonzalez will end his 2004 season with ligament replacement surgery on his right elbow Monday.

Gonzalez, 36, has played all season with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow. An MRI exam last October revealed a 50 percent tear, but he didn't want to miss the start of the 2004 campaign.

The injury affected his throwing and he experienced numbness and tingling, while having occasional pain. Team orthopedists will perform Tommy John surgery in Phoenix, AZ.

Gonzalez, who is expected to need about four to six months of rehab, is batting .264 with 17 home runs and 46 RBI this season. His last game of 2004 will be Sunday against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field.

Arizona is currently in Houston for the finale of a four-game series at Minute Maid Park.
