Hamilton has successful surgery

MRIs confirmed that Josh Hamilton had a sports hernia, and he had successful surgery to repair it on Friday morning in Philadelphia.

Dr. William Meyers performed the surgery, which was on Hamilton's left side. Hamilton will return to Texas on Saturday, and is expected to be fully recovered by spring training.

In 2009, Hamilon had a surgery for a partial tear of a right abdominal muscle performed by Meyers.

While playing through the injury in the postseason, Hamilton hit .271 with seven doubles, one home run and 13 RBIs in 17 games.
