Strasburg, Harper, LaRoche All Had Minor Offseason Surgeries

WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – The Nationals announced Saturday that Stephen Strasburg, Bryce Harper and Adam LaRoche all had minor offseason surgeries with limited recovery time expected, according to James Wagner of the Washington Post.

Strasburg had arthroscopic surgery Friday to remove bone chips from his right elbow, Wagner reports, with a four to six week recovery time expected.

Harper underwent surgery to debride and repair a bursa in his left knee, according to Wagner, which will also carry an expected four to six week recovery time.

He missed 44 games during the 2013 regular season, largely due to complications stemming from when he ran into the right-field wall at Dodger Stadium in May.

LaRoche underwent surgery on Wednesday to remove loose bodies in his left elbow, Wagner says, and is expected to be fully recovered in four to six weeks.

All three players are expected to be ready for spring training.
