Outfielder Larry Walker underwent clean-up surgeries on his left shoulder and right knee on Wednesday and should be in shape for Spring Training, the Colorado Rockies announced.
Team physicians Dr. Richard Hawkins and Dr. Thomas Noonan performed a debridement of a tear of the labrum in the non-throwing shoulder and repaired a small meniscus tear in the knee. Walker, who turns 37 on Dec. 1, scheduled the surgery just before the end of the regular season.

The operations were performed at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic in Englewood, Colo.

The calming factor for the Rockies was that the shoulder surgery was arthroscopic.

There was some concern late in the regular season that Walker's shoulder, which bothered him throughout and was at least partly responsible for his worst full season in a Colorado uniform (.284, 16 HR, 79 RBIs), would reveal greater damage once doctors were inside.

Hey, were you like pre-hampster hampster?

All the king's horses and all the king's men were able to put Walker together again - at least for one more season.
