Ryan Howard had surgery today


Matt Gelb reports that Ryan Howard had surgery to repair his ruptured left Achilles tendon this morning.

The recovery time is unknown, though lots of people have been suggesting that it’s a solid six months.  I certainly wouldn’t bet the farm on him being in the Opening Day lineup right now but I suppose stranger things have happened.

Things like seeing Ryan Howard motor around a Whole Foods on a Rascal over the weekend. Nice.
