INF Gio Urshela underwent surgery today to remove a bone chip from his right elbow. The procedure was performed by Yankees Head Team Physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital & went as expected.

This came out of the blue. Yankees’ third baseman Gio Urshela went under the knife to have a bone chip removed from his right elbow today. The initial plan was no surgery after the season ended. So much for that.
Urshela posted a photo of himself after the surgery, and the Yankees announced it about an hour later.
Fortunately, the timing isn’t all that bad here. Urshela’s timeline puts him on track to return in the middle of Spring Training. If his rehab goes according to plan, he’ll still be the team’s Opening Day third baseman. Get well soon, Gio.
