LaPorta Has Surgery
October 14, 2009
LaPorta missed several games in late September with left hip inflammation and injured his toe on the final game of the season on October 4th in Boston running down a fly ball in the outfield. Rehabilitation for Matt is between 4-to-6 months with the goal of making a full recovery in time for the start of the 2010 season. He will remain in Vail for a week and will spend most of the off-season rehabbing in Goodyear, AZ.
