Great news, Angels fans! Kendrys Morales had surgery on his left ankle today and, according to the team, the surgery was deemed a success.
Indeed, this is the best news Angels fans have heard since last year, when Kenrdys Morales had surgery on his left ankle and it was deemed a success!
It’s gonna be hard to top all of this success with future surgeries on Morales’ left ankle, but given their track record so far, I’m sure they can at least maintain this level of success indefinitely!
Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports that Tigers starter Mike Fiers is dealing with a back issue and may not be ready for the start of the season. Manager Ron Gardenhire characterized the injury as a “stiff back” and added, “Maybe a little bit of a bulging disk or something like that.”
Fiers, 32, signed a one-year, $6 million deal with the Tigers in December. He has had a forgettable spring, yielding 12 runs on 10 hits and eight walks with seven strikeouts in 11 1/3 innings.
Fiers had a rotation spot locked up along with Michael Fulmer, Jordan Zimmermann, and Francisco Liriano. Matt Boyd and Daniel Norris were battling it out for the No. 5 spot. If Fiers opens the regular season on the 10-day disabled list, both could have spots in the rotation.
