Jeff Keppinger is not the only free agent who is recovering from unexpected offseason ankle surgery.

According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports, outfielder and designated hitter Delmon Young underwent an ankle procedure on November 10 to remove painful bone spurs and smooth out some jagged cartilage.

Young is fully expected to recovered by the beginning of spring training next February, so the surgery shouldn’t have too significant of an effect on the years and dollars that he ultimately signs for.

The 27-year-old batted .267/.296/.411 with 18 home runs and 74 RBI in 608 plate appearances this past season for the Tigers. He also went 15-for-58 with three home runs and nine RBI in 13 postseason games.

    I’m confused, the headline says Delmon, but that’s a photo of Dmitri.

    It’s too bad the doctors couldn’t give him a personality transplant while they were at it.

    Dang, That is a big head. If we pulled the eyeballs out of their sockets, I think I could average 230 on the lanes with that head.
    No way you get eight of those suckers in a duffelbag.

    If he wants to help that ankle heal, he should give Jenny Craig a call, Jesus, that head on him looks like a beach ball.

    Too bad it hasn’t been career ending, yet. Fingers crossed. This animal doesn’t deserve to play professional baseball.

      It’s so awesome watching men call each other out on their weight.

        OK, he looks like a fat chick, with a mouth full of walnuts.
