Doctor explains Yankees' Miguel Andujar's long, tough recovery ahead

BALTIMORE — Yankees third baseman Miguel Andujar's recovery from right shoulder labrum surgery will be long and slow, but he should be good for the rest of his career, said Dr. Joseph Bax, a pain management and rehabilitation specialist for the Mount Sinai Health System. “The process can vary in terms of a time frame,” Bax said, “and it'll go quite slow, gradually advancing in increments to make sure he doesn't re-injure.” Dr. Christopher Ahmad, the Yankees' team physician, repaired what the club has called a partial tear in Andujar's labrum at New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Monday. Andujar isn't expected to play again this season. Andujar posted a post-surgery photo to his Instagram account.
