Anyone ever heard of surgery for a sprain?
I think some guys have TJ for what is technically a sprain, but ya definitely rare.
Santana’s knee surgery wasn’t as invasive as teammate Grady Sizemore’s, as he had no fractures or ligament damage inside the knee, only a high-grade sprain of the LCL. He’s currently rehabbing in Arizona and although he might be eased into things at the beginning of spring training, he’s expected to be fine by opening day, barring a setback.
And the Tribe is planning on playing him at 1B a little bit.
