Rasmus (groin) had a pair of surgeries on October 18 to address a hip issue and a core muscle injury, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

Rasmus was plagued by multiple injuries in 2016, but it seems like he's spending the early portion of his offseason doing maintenance on various parts of his body. The hip operation was to shave off a bone spur and repair the labrum in his left hip, while the other was to repair a core muscle. Although it sounds like a lot, the free-agent outfielder is expected to be running at 100 percent by January and back to full strength prior to spring training. This could affect his ability to sign with teams over the winter, but it seems like there shouldn't be a problem for fantasy purposes.
