Rockies | Todd Helton encouraged with hip

Colorado Rockies 1B Todd Helton (hip) said he's feeling fine after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his hip six days ago. Helton's recovery time is around six months, which will put him on schedule to take part in spring training next year. He'll be on crutches for another three weeks, and he's spending time hooked up to a passive motion machine to help him heal. "The good news is that there were no signs of arthritis or a need to do microfracture (surgery) or anything like that," trainer Keith Dugger said.
