The baseball season is long and grueling. 162 games in the regular season and perhaps many more in the post season is what an athlete subjects himself to. Today, it is reported that several Phillies are undergoing surgeries to prolong their careers and get them healthy again for next year.
Phillies reported under doctor’s care so far:
|Procedure||Date of return|
|Brad Lidge||Loose bodies in arm||Spring Training|
|Scott Eyre||Loose bodies in arm||Spring Training|
|Raul Ibanez||Sports Hernia||Spring Training|
This list of Phillies under going procedures may grow as time goes by, though the earlier these procedures get finished, the sooner the player can be healthy again for yet another season.
