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 Shelly Duncan, who also has a sports hernia.
