Twins outfielder (and sometimes first-baseman) Michael Cuddyer underwent a surgical procedure on his right knee Wednesday, getting it out of the way soon after his club was eliminated from the ALDS by the Yankees.
Cuddyer took to his Twitter page this evening to say that everything “went well” and that he appreciated all the support.
The 31-year-old batted .271/.336/.417 with 14 homers, 81 RBI and 93 runs over 157 games during the 2010 regular season. He filled in most of the year for first baseman Justin Morneau, who fell victim to a concussion early on and never made it back.
Cuddyer went 2-for-4 with a home run in Game 1 of the ALDS, but 0-for-7 with three strikeouts in the last two contests.
* By the way, you Minnesotans can’t pretend to dislike that. It’s a compliment, and anyone who’s been to the state knows why you’re all so damn pleasant. Because Minnesota is clean and gorgeous, and because everyone knows that a lake house party is the best kind of party.
