LaPorta has surgery on left hip, big toe

Matt LaPorta limped his way through the final weeks of the 2009 season because of a lingering left hip issue. But while the Indians had said rest would be good for what was ailing LaPorta, it turns out surgery was necessary.

LaPorta will be behind schedule in Spring Training camp as a result of left arthroscopic hip surgery performed by Dr. Marc Philippon in Vail, Colo., on Tuesday. LaPorta also had a surgical procedure performed by Dr. Thomas Clanton to address his left big toe, which he injured while running into the wall at Fenway Park on the last day of the season.

Head athletic trainer Lonnie Soloff is expected to address LaPorta’s situation with reporters Wednesday afternoon.

According to a release from the Tribe, LaPorta will need four to six months to recover from the hip procedure, in which Philippon performed a debridement of a bony impingement in the hip joint. That would obviously affect LaPorta’s preseason conditioning in Spring Training. His situation might be comparable to that of Travis Hafner this year. Recovering from shoulder surgery, Hafner was a couple weeks behind his teammates in camp and wasn’t ready to play on an everyday basis at the start of the season. The Indians are obviously hopeful LaPorta’s recovery will be quicker.

LaPorta will remain in Vail for a week before spending most of his offseason rehabbing in Goodyear, Ariz. 

LaPorta is the third member of the Tribe to have surgery at season’s end. Last week, shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera had arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow, while reliever Chris Perez had surgery to remove a loose bone and a cyst in his left ankle. Center fielder Grady Sizemore had season-ending surgeries on his left elbow and left lower abdominal wall in September.

Is their anyone else headed for surgery? Every other week there is someone else having surgery.

“In a related story, Cleveland Indians beat writer Anthony Castrovince will be undergoing arthroscopic surgery today on his right index finger. Castrovince claims he hurt the finger back in July, while covering all the trades the Indians were making. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Thomas Graham, who has also been reconstructing Adam Miller’s finger for the past three years. Apparently, Castrovince’s finger caused him significant pain, but he refused to stop coming to work. “He’s a grinder, that’s for sure,” said former Tribe skipper Eric Wedge. “If there is someone out there who can cover 162 games a year, healthy or not, it’s AC.” While it is not yet known if Castrovince will be healthy at the beginning of spring training or not, he is certainly looking forward to the time off. In his words, he is going to “Sit in my office, which smells of rich mahogany, and read my many leather bound books, during the day. And at night, roam the bars of Court Street.”

lol pigeon. When will Lonnie have an update on his recovery?

They are holding a press conference tomorrow. And the timing couldn’t be worse, as the Indians signed Castrovince to an extension through 2013, and he is set to earn 14 million a year.

Seriously, pigeon, maybe you should start writing a comedy column for this blog. Funny ha-ha, not funny sad, as AC, unfortunately, has the funny sad material covered (through no fault of his own, of course).

Hahaha…..Nice. Well crafted, Pigeon.

quality stuff there pigeon

Love it. Nice work, pigeon.

Thanks a lot guys, I appreciate it. The said thing is this story wouldn’t surprise me at all. Again, I appreciate the compliments.

Hmmm… didn’t mean to post twice. My bad.

Nothing is surprising about the Indians season this year. Heck – I wouldn’t doubt it if Matt Underwood went on the DAL (Designated announcers list… LOL made it up myself) for strepth throat ** don’t make fun of me if I didn’t spell it right. ** : ) My dad thought that Andy Van Slyke would look good as the new coach of the Indians?

AC: Anyone: What are your thoughts?

Stop by the blog.

I guess I missed that little spot where AC mentions that LaPorta’s recovery will be 4-6 months. Ouch…
Even in the best case scenario, he will be behind schedule. I wonder how that will affect the opening day lineup. I guess the Andy Marte trial period has been extended by a few weeks.

jk, that was my first thought, I’d say it guarantees that they hang onto both Marte and Jordan Brown

Is Matt LaPorta becoming Michael Aubrey 2.0?

bvielhaber, I would strongly doubt that. I’m really not worried about this LaPorta thing, other than him having a late start.
ST, honestly, now that I think about it, I would rather see Jordan Brown spell LaPorta than Marte. Marte has had several opportunities on the MLB level, and has never really shown the consistent quality at bats like he did in Columbus this year. I would like to see what Brown can do, and if he just doesn’t fit in to our plans, then it would be a good opportunity see if he is ready to “show case” his MLB potential for a trade opportunity. I say all this, but think Marte will still have a spot on the opening day roster. With Peralta being so patchy this year, having Marte available for third base would be worth the roster spot.
Back to Brown, I know we aren’t expected to make any moves this offseason, and dealing prospects would be way outside the current trend, but, I see Brown as an opportunity for another solid reliever or pitching prospects. Something similar to the Gutierrez for Smith/Valbuena. Thoughts?

I don’t know that Brown has any value as it stands, goes back to the argument that the Indians should have called him up for September … I argued at the time that they should rest Hafner and call up Brown, it he’d hit well in the 30 or so games it would at least have increased his trade value, if he didn’t hit well, no loss … I would say the best reason to hang onto Brown would actually be to hedge against Hafner being unable to perform, the problem with playing Brown at 1b is it would give the Indians almost an exclusively LH lineup, so Marte would have to be the first choice to fill in for Laporta, but if Laporta starts the season on the DL it would be good to have Brown on the team as an option … I was for an offseason trade of Peralta for a reliever, but I think now that Peralta played himself out of any value and they may actually be better off hanging onto him, if he has a good 1st half they could get something for him with a deadline deal … I think Brown and Marte currently are worth more as backups in case of injuries than as trade-bait, because I don’t think they’d get anything for either player in a trade.

Ultrasound technicians, also known as sonographers, fall into a distinct category of medical professions. They’re not necessarily doctors or nurses but they provide critical support functions that allow doctors to make diagnoses in order to treat their patients properly. Ultrasound technicians have the distinct pleasure of working with both expecting mothers and individuals who are ill. So what should you do if you want to become an ultrasound technician?Become an Ultrasound Tecnician

In March 2009, the advocacy group Campaign for Safe Cosmetics made an alarming announcement about baby bath-care products. The group tested the composition of 48 major-brand products looking for two specific chemicals believed to cause cancer: formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane. It found that the vast majority of them contained at least one of the two. ^
