To be honest, you don't know how he will recover from this. It could have 0% effect. But chances are, it will set back his workout schedule to start the season. Most players train over the winter regularly and ease into the season by participating in Spring Training games. IMO, a guy who has limited experience in the majors to begin with, not able to go through the normal process of preparing for the season will have a tougher time.
It would be wise to knock him down a bit from the rankings. But then again, if a lot of people are down on him he may actually be a bargain which I would not have said two days ago.
