Michael Cuddyer undergoes surgery for a core muscle injury
Michael Cuddyer underwent surgery to repair a core muscle injury on Thursday, the Mets announced Friday evening. The procedure was performed at the Vincera Institute in Philadelphia.
Cuddyer will presumably be ready for Spring Training.
Cuddyer hit .259/.309/.391 with ten home runs and 41 RBI in 408 plate appearances over 117 games in the regular season in 2015. He went just 1-for-11 with seven strikeouts during the postseason.
He suffered a bone bruise in his knee in early July and was relegated to part-time duty from that point forward in 2015. He performed well in a limited role, hitting .293/.336/.448 with six doubles and four home runs in 45 games after June 30.
Cuddyer is under contract for $12.5 million in 2015.
