Indians | Matt LaPorta has surgery

Cleveland Indians 1B Matt LaPorta (hip) underwent arthroscopic left hip surgery Thursday, Oct. 18, and he'll need three to four months of recovery time. He's expected to be fully ready for spring training unless he suffers a setback. "He's out of options going into next year," general manager Chris Antonetti said at the end of the regular season. "So he'll either have to be on a major league team somewhere or he'd have to go through waivers before he could be sent back to the minor leagues." It seems unlikely that LaPorta will earn an everyday job at this point with Cleveland, though. INF Russ Canzler and 3B Jack Hannahan are other options at first base, and Canzler and OF Ezequiel Carrera are the leading internal candidates for left field.
