CLEVELAND (AP) — Indians rookie reliever Cam Hill underwent surgery on his right wrist after being involved in a car accident in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Hill shared details of the incident on his Instagram account, saying he was “very blessed to only bang up my wrist. Surgery went really well, most importantly the others involved in the accident were all okay.”
Hill also posted a photo of him recovering in his hospital bed with his right arm heavily bandaged. He gave a thumbs up with his left hand.
Cleveland said Dr. Brian Chalkin, a hand specialist, operated Monday night on the right-hander’s lunate bone, located in the mid-carpal joint. The team said surgery went “as expected” and that it does not have any details yet on Hill’s rehab or when he might be able to pitch.
