Shocker: Getz To Have Surgery

256

Having to leave the team in order to have surgery on Thursday in Philadelphia was not the way the second baseman wanted his 2009 season to end, let alone to have that last day with his teammates day cut short because of bad weather, but there was one more light work session with hitting coach Greg Walker in the batting cages for Getz, and then off he goes. The lower oblique strain that put him on the 15-day disabled list back on Aug. 21 had still been bothering him, so Getz saw a specialist and a sports hernia was discovered. The plan was first to address it at the end of the season, but that plan went out the window now that the rest of the Sox schedule is basically meaningless.
