Surgery on Getz's thumb a success
KANSAS CITY -- The surgery on Chris Getz's fractured left thumb went well, according to manager Ned Yost.
Getz underwent surgery on Saturday at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Dr. Bruce Toby put two pins in the thumb, and the recovery is expected to take eight weeks.
Getz will miss the remainder of this season, but a full recovery is expected, and he should be ready for the 2013 season.
Getz sustained the fracture in the fifth inning of Friday's game against the White Sox when a pitch hit his thumb while he attempted to lay down a bunt.
