Angels manager Mike Scioscia passed along an interesting tidbit to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register this afternoon, as it was revealed that second baseman Howie Kendrick required offseason surgery on his elbow.

While it would be better news if Kendrick didn’t need the surgery at all, the procedure was considered minor and he’s already back to 100 percent. It doesn’t sound like he’ll be restricted at all this spring.

Kendrick, 29, batted .287/.325/.400 with eight home runs, 67 RBI, 14 stolen bases and a .725 OPS in 2012. He’s owed $28.65 million over the next three seasons.

    That sound you here is Howie bouncing balls off the rockpile in left center. Cant wait to see what this line up is capable of this year. We may give up some runs but if we score more we win. Lets play ball!

    Will this surgery help him with his GIDP problem? We can only hope.
