After surgery, Redmond on the mend
MIAMI — The operation was a success, and now the recovery begins for Marlins manager Mike Redmond.
Redmond on Friday underwent surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon he sustained while playing tennis recently. Full recovery is about 10 weeks, but the Marlins manager will be ready for Spring Training in mid-February.
The Achilles’ injury hasn’t slowed Redmond down too much. He attended the Winter Meetings in San Diego, sporting a walking boot.
Redmond on Saturday took to Twitter, posting a picture of himself on crutches and in a cast. In his tweet, Redmond stated: “Picked up a new wheel yesterday!! Hopefully this one is faster then the last… On the Road to recovery. Go Fish”
