Polanco Has Successful Surgery

The Phillies announced today third baseman Placido Polanco had successful surgery on his left elbow.

Phillies physician Michael Ciccotti removed spurs from the elbow and performed a debridement and repair of the lateral extensor tendon. Polanco will have follow-up appointments with Ciccotti over the next several weeks.

“It went very well and we are fully expecting Placido to be 100 percent by Spring Training,” Ruben Amaro Jr. said in a statement. “We hope to have him swinging the bat again within 10 weeks, around early January.”
