Aceves had the surgery yesterday at New York-Presbyterian. It was performed by team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad. Aceves has been prescribed six weeks of rest and will need a total of three months for a full rehabilitation. At least it’s his left side, not his right.

Brett Gardner is also undergoing surgery. Gardner is scheduled for surgery next Tuesday, December 7, also at New York-Presbyterian. He’s undergoing a procedure for right wrist tendinitis — he’s had wrist trouble for a while — and is expected to be ready for the start of spring training.
