Hafner update

Postby TonyIBI » Tue Jan 06, 2009 5:12 pm

Indians DH TRAVIS HAFNER recently underwent a 12-week re-check in Birmingham, Alabama with Dr James Andrews. Andrews performed an arthroscopic debridement (clean out) of Hafner’s right shoulder joint in Birmingham on October 14th.

Travis continues to progress well from the procedure and has been cleared by Dr. Andrews to initiate pre-hitting activities at Progressive Field this week. These activities will culminate with a return to hitting program in mid-January.

Good news, I guess. I worry that a DH that hasn't swung a bat in 6 months will be game ready by opening day. If he isn't, there's a big hole in the lineup.

I read this online too. ha...so mid-january....so a week or two? (why not just say that?)


I know I'm overly optimistic....but I see big things from Hafner this year. Maybe not 2006 big, but 2007 at least......
