The Yankees announced on Tuesday that outfielder Aaron Judge underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder, aiming to remove loose bodies and clean up cartilage. Judge is expected to be fully recovered by the time spring training begins in February.

Judge, 25, injured his shoulder on a slide in the second half, though he consistently denied that it bothered him. He slumped heavily, batting just .179 with seven home runs in 191 plate appearances between July 14 and August 31.

Judge still wound up taking home AL Rookie of the Year honors and finished second in AL Most Valuable Player Award balloting. Overall, he hit .284/.422/.627 with 52 home runs, 114 RBI, and 128 runs scored in 678 trips to the plate.
