Betts underwent right knee arthroscopy, chondroplasty, and a lose body removal to clean up his knee.
Here’s the official statement from the Red Sox:
Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts underwent successful right knee arthroscopy, chondroplasty, and a loose body removal yesterday. The procedure was performed by Head Team Orthopedist Dr. Peter Asnis at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Betts is expected to make a full recovery in time for Spring Training 2017.
The 24-year-old Betts battled knee soreness for the majority of the second half of the 2016 MLB season, which lead to off-season surgery being the case. That didn’t stop him from putting up a .338/.388/.547 slash line with 13 homers and 54 RBIs in the 2nd half, however.
Collectively for the 2016 season, Betts batted .318/.363/.534 with 31 homers, 113 RBIs, and 26 stolen bases. He is a finalist for the MVP award.
