SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants second baseman Freddy Sanchez underwent successful surgery to repair his right labrum in Arizona on Tuesday, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.
"From what we hear, the surgery went well," Bochy said. "They repaired the labrum, and he should be ready for Spring Training."
The operation brings a definitive end to Sanchez's 2011 season. The second baseman played 60 games, batting .289 with a .730 OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage). Head athletic trainer Dave Groeschner had previously said Sanchez would need a few weeks to let the injured area "calm down" following surgery. He injured the shoulder diving for a ground ball June 10 and attempted to rehab it before opting to surgically repair it.
Sanchez has dealt with a number of injuries during his time with the Giants. He underwent surgery on his left shoulder twice in a year, most recently in December -- a procedure that slowed him in Spring Training this year.
