Marwin González had offseason knee surgery

Twins utilityman Marwin González made his spring debut on Tuesday against the Tigers, going two-for-two with a double, a home run, and three RBI. He got a late start to the Grapefruit League season because he had offseason knee surgery, The Athletic’s Dan Hayes reports. Specifically, the procedure was a patellar debridement which kept the veteran off of his feet into late December.

González, 30, is in the second year of a two-year, $21 million contract signed with the Twins 13 months ago. He’s earning $9 million this year and can become a free agent after the season. González is coming off of a slightly disappointing season in which he appeared in 114 games, batting .264/.322/.414 with 15 home runs and 55 RBI over 463 plate appearances.

Giants C Garcia to miss up to eight months after hip surgery

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco Giants catcher Aramis Garcia had surgery on his right hip after getting injured during winter ball in the Dominican Republic in December. He will miss up to eight months.

The Giants said Saturday that Garcia underwent surgery Thursday to repair the labrum in his hip. He has begun a rehab program.

Garcia first went through treatment and rehabilitation before receiving another opinion from Dr. Marc Philippon, who performed the arthroscopic procedure once it was determined the best option.

Well, this could mean that my neck of the woods will be seeing Joey Bart earlier than expected…..

Paxton out 3-4 months after spinal surgery

TAMPA, Fla.—The Yankees’ injury woes were historic last year, prompting the revamping of the organization’s strength and conditioning protocol. In James Paxton’s case, that poor fortune has carried over into 2020.

Paxton’s season debut will be delayed after the Yankees announced on Wednesday that the left-hander underwent a microscopic lumbar discectomy with removal of a peridiscal cyst.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Andrew Dossett in Dallas, and the club said that Paxton’s approximate timeline to return to Major League action is three to four months.

General manager Brian Cashman said that Paxton first reported the injury issue in September, receiving treatment after his final regular-season start on Sept. 27 against the Rangers in Arlington.

Best wishes for a quick recovery.
