Magglio Ordonez To Undergo Season-Ending Ankle Surgery

It was unlikely that Magglio Ordonez would return this season after suffering a broken ankle. But the end of his season became official when the Tigers announced that Ordonez will undergo surgery on Wednesday to stabilize that ankle.

According to MLB.com’s Jason Beck, Ordonez visited a specialist in Los Angeles who recommended surgery after examining how the ankle has healed over the past month.

More from Beck:

It isn’t a major procedure, but it’ll require enough recovery time that he won’t be able to come back in September as previously hoped. The original timetable on Ordonez’s recovery was 4-6 weeks, but the fact that Ordonez was still on crutches after his follow-up exam last week in Detroit put that very much in doubt.

Does this mean the end of Ordonez’s career with the Tigers? General manager Dave Dombrowski said such discussions won’t take place until after the season, as per organizational policy.

Ordonez thus finishes his 2010 season with a .303/.378/.484 average, 12 home runs, and 59 RBIs in 365 plate appearances (84 games).
