Surgery a possibility for Pronk
We just had our annual media post-mortem with Mark Shapiro and one of the many topics that came up, of course, was Travis Hafner’s right shoulder. The Indians are considering whether or not Hafner will undergo arthroscopic surgery on the shoulder this winter, or whether they’ll go with their original plan of rehabbing the shoulder without surgery. Shapiro said Pronk’s end-of-the-year physical found the shoulder to be weaker than expected.
I’ll have more info on the Indians.com site shortly, and I’ll have a more complete story on Shapiro’s thoughts heading into the offseason on Wednesday.
