Minnesota Twins All-Star shortstop Jorge Polanco underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right ankle on Friday, the team announced Wednesday.
The Twins said Polanco underwent the procedure to repair an impingement. He will be able to resume baseball activities in six weeks and should be healthy by spring training.
The club said the injury was due to repetitive stress.
The 26-year-old Polanco enjoyed a career year in 2019 by batting .295 with 22 homers, 40 doubles and 79 RBIs in 153 games. He was the first Twins shortstop to start in the All-Star Game since Roy Smalley in 1979.
Overall, Polanco has a .281 career average with 45 homers, 104 doubles and 226 RBIs in 441 games over four-plus seasons.
