Brett Gardner Had Abdominal Surgery

Brett Gardner apparently had abdominal surgery this offseason to fix a core muscle in his abdominal area. This could explain all the lower abdominal issues that Gardner had this season, no? Guess those muscles aren't used to hitting 15 home runs a season. Anyway, here is the press release from the Yankees:

Yankees OF Brett Gardner underwent surgery to repair a core muscle injury to his right rectus abdominis muscle on October 16. The surgery was performed by Dr. William Meyers at the Philadelphia Vincera Institute in Philadelphia, PA.

Gardner would need four weeks of recovery time to begin baseball activities and the surgery happened three weeks ago so we should see a 100% healthy Gardner in spring training 2015.
