Kendry Morales had surgery early Thursday. Details about the extent of his broken fibula and any possible damage to any bones in his ankle were not disclosed. What is certain is that he will not be in uniform again this season.
Reports that Morales could recover in time to help the team in September were not accurate. His 2010 season is over.
The Angels assured the media that the injury has been completely repaired and will lead to no chronic damage. Morales should be 100% for the start of Spring Training, 2011.
After team doctor Lewis Yocum decided to delay the surgery until the swelling went down, ankle specialist Phillip E. Kwong (a USC graduate) performed the operation today.
