San Francisco Giants third baseman Evan Longoria has elected to have surgery on his broken left hand Taylor Rapp Jersey , hoping that can speed his return to the field.
Longoria underwent an examination in Los Angeles on Saturday morning and said surgery was not required.
The procedure could improve his recovery time, he said.
”Hopefully soon after the All-Star break, I should be back,” Longoria said before the Giants played the Dodgers. ”It shouldn’t be too long before I can start the process of strengthening it. Once the incision heals, it’s pretty much pain tolerance.”
”It’s best to say six to eight weeks, but I have a hard time telling myself that,” Longoria said. ”I’ll definitely push for some time soon after the All-Star break.”
The surgery will be done Tuesday in Los Angeles by hand specialist Steven Shin and a permanent pin will be inserted in Longoria’s left hand.
The 32-year-old Longoria is batting .246 with 10 home runs in his first season with the Giants, and was tied for the team lead with 34 RBIs.
Longoria was a three-time All-Star in 10 seasons with Tampa Bay before being traded to the Giants last winter.
Contrary to popular belief Shareef Miller Jersey , the National Football League isn’t only about the biggest and most naturally gifted athletes.

Brees, the 35-year-old native of Austin, Texas Germaine Pratt Jersey , has reached the Pro Bowl eight times, was the Super Bowl XLIV MVP as the New Orleans Saints knocked off the Indianapolis Colts, won the Associated Press NFL Offensive Player of the Year award twice, and also holds numerous NFL records including most 50,000 yard passing seasons (4), most consecutive NFL games with a touchdown pass (54), and being the fastest quarterback in NFL history to reach 50,000 passing yards. He has been able to achieve all of these honors while standing just 6’0.” In comparison to other stars at that position http://www.bengalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-ryan-finley-jersey , Ben Roethlisberger is 6’5”, Tom Brady is 6’4”, and Peyton Manning is 6’5.”Being a short professional football player isn’t a death sentence in terms of longevity in the league. Over the years, there have been many short players that have succeeded in the most popular American sport, but who are the shortest of all-time?
