So we can forget about David Aardsma being traded this Winter, as news broke today that he’ll be undergoing hip surgery on Monday to repair a torn labrum in his left hip. Not only does this mean we won’t be trading him, but it also means we’ll be paying for his 2011 arbitration raise after all. I was really looking forward to another team doing that.
The word is that the Mariners expect him to be ready by opening day, so there’s that. At the very least, this should make Megan at Section 331 happy.
