Dodgers News: Hernandez To Undergo Minor Surgery

A haunting trend at the end of last year was the list of players ranging from “sore” to “injured” to “outright hobbled”. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise to see a few players going under the knife to fix the several ailments incurred during the season.

The latest name on the list: Enrique Hernandez.

There’s always the saying: “there’s no such thing as minor surgery when you’re being worked on”, but this type of thing is pretty par for the course this time of year. It’s almost impossible to overstate how grueling a 162-game season might be both physically and mentally on players. Once it ends and there is time to reflect on that adversity, how much damage might have actually been done can set in.

For the Dodgers, Hernandez served as a productive utility man, filling in gaps whenever others fell short. His full recovery would give just a little more flexibility to move either Carl Crawford or Andre Ethier and shed salary for other more efficient ways to allocate the Dodgers’ extensive resources.

Get well soon, Kike.
