UA softball pitcher Kenzie Fowler will undergo back surgery but should be ready in time for the start of the 2013 season, the school announced Friday in a press release.

Fowler, who has battled injuries for the past two seasons, will undergo a procedure on Thursday in Los Angeles to repair a herniated disc. The procedure is called a microscopic lumbar discectomy.

The injury occurred in January and Fowler has had back pain as well as leg and foot numbness for the past nine months, according to the release.
