Molina rehabs from knee surgery, plans to play in mid-March

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina plans to begin playing spring training games in mid-March as he recovers from recent knee surgery.

The longtime star had a minor cleanup procedure on his left knee last month.

“Right now, I’m probably 50 percent with my knee,” Molina said Monday at the Cardinals Winter Warm-Up fan event. “I keep working on my rehab down there in Jupiter (Florida). We’re planning to be 100 percent ready.”

Yankees’ CC Sabathia had heart surgery, to be ready for spring training

New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia is expected to be ready for spring training after undergoing heart surgery earlier this month.

Sabathia had a stent inserted into his heart to relieve a blockage in one of the left-hander’s arteries, Sabathia’s agent, Kyle Thousand, told The Athletic.

“CC is doing great and will be reporting to spring training on time to get ready to play for his upcoming final season in 2019,” Thousand said.

Richard Adler and Jerry Ross wrote a song on this subject, I believe.

Posey could be limited early, should return to 100 percent

LAS VEGAS- Buster Posey’s recovery from right hip surgery might limit how much the San Francisco All-Star catches during spring training and at the start of the season.

Posey had surgery in late August to repair a torn labrum in the hip and remove an impingement.

“Certainly with a guy like Buster coming off the major surgery it might impact his spring training workload and maybe even his early season workload, but for now all the indications are positive that he’ll be 100 percent,” new Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi said at the winter meetings.

Best wishes for Buster- would that I had anywhere near the confidence Farhan Zaidi is expressing here…..

Report: Dodgers’ Kenley Jansen to Undergo Heart Surgery, Expected to Return for Spring Training

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen will undergo heart surgery on Nov. 26 and is expected to be fully recovered prior to spring training, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Jansen announced the upcoming surgery on Friday at the Dodgers’ annual Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway. Recovery is expected to take anywhere between two to eight weeks depending on what the doctors find during surgery.

“If we don’t find anything, so let’s say they go in and nothing happens, everything is good, I will be done in two weeks,” Jansen said, per Gurnick. “But if something is abnormal, then I’ll be down for eight weeks. ... But I still can do all my [offseason work] to get ready for Opening Day.”

Best wishes, and hopes for a speedy recovery.

Best I can tell, the heel had a trip to Atlantic City that it wasn’t willing to delay.

Closer Kenley Jansen rejoins Dodgers, expects offseason heart surgery

Stuck in Los Angeles over the weekend, unable to travel to Denver because of concerns about his heart, Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen rejoined the club for Monday’s series opener against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.

“To be honest, it was a little boring to be at home,” Jansen said before the Dodgers faced the Reds. “I love my wife. I love my kids. But my mind was really with the team.”

Jansen did not idle during his days away from the team. He maintained his exercise regimen so he could pitch in this series. He visited his cardiologist Thursday and underwent an examination Friday. The tests firmed up Jansen’s expectation of undergoing a second ablation to correct his irregular heartbeat.
