I'd like to begin with an apology for the lack of content on our site. Ted's Army will be undergoing some changes in the near future, resulting in a smaller amount of posts. We figured now is the perfect time to do so, seeing as it is the slowest time in baseball news. Please continue to check back, as we will continue to post to the site. Thank you for your continued support of Ted's Army, and we hope to make it better for you in the future.
Back to the topic...
Shane Victorino underwent successful thumb surgery yesterday, and he is not expected to miss any of Spring Training.
The Red Sox announced that right fielder Shane Victorino underwent successful nerve release surgery on his right thumb on Monday, and that the Gold Glove winner is expected to be ready to participate in spring training. The procedure was performed by Dr. Thomas Graham in Cleveland.
Sure, that's good news. I value Shane more for his glove than his bat, even though he had his moments in the playoffs. The thought of losing him in the outfield worries me more than missing him from the lineup. He won't be missing any time so, all is well with him right now.
Glad to hear more positive news than negative this off-season. It is very refreshing!
