Diamondbacks shortstop Stephen Drew is still recovering from the severely fractured right ankle that he suffered back in late July. And now he has even more offseason rehab to look forward to.
According to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, Drew underwent surgery last month to fix a hernia.
Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers told Piecoro that the procedure should only set Drew back “a week to 10 days,” but that might be enough to put his status for the opening of the 2012 season in question.
Drew, 28, batted .252/.317/.396 with five home runs and 45 RBI in 354 plate appearances this season before breaking his ankle on a play at home plate. He’s set to earn a $7.75 million salary in 2012.
