Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jerry Dipoto announced today the following medical update on second baseman Robinson Canó:

Robinson Canó underwent surgery today to repair both a right side and a left side core muscle injury. The surgery was performed in Philadelphia by Dr. William Meyers of the Vincera Institute.

Recovery is expected to take six weeks, and Canó should be completely recovered for the start of Spring Training in February.

Canó, 32, was originally diagnosed with a core muscle injury on his right side in late September. During his pre-surgery examinations with Dr. Meyers, an additional MRI was performed that revealed a second core muscle injury on his left side.

Canó hit .287 (179×624) with 82 runs, 34 doubles, 1 triple, 21 home runs and 79 RBI in 156 games (155 starts) this season. He hit .330 (109×330) with 52 runs, 15 doubles, 1 triple, 17 home runs, 55 RBI in his final 82 games.
