Sogard (knee) has begun on-field defensive drills, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports. The knee surgery Sogard underwent in April has proven more debilitating than expected. He is still a few weeks away from even being able to run, but he is hopeful he will be able to join the Athletics by September.
Sogard (knee) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Wednesday. The A's needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster Wednesday after selecting Zach Neal's contract from Triple-A Nashville, leading the club to transfer Sogard to the 60-day DL. Sogard underwent knee surgery in April to remove loose bodies from the affected area and was initially expected to miss just 4-to-6 weeks, but his placement on the 60-day DL guarantees a much later return date.
Sogard (left knee) will likely miss four-to-six weeks after undergoing surgery performed by Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Sogard did not have any damage to his ligament but required the procedure in order to remove loose bodies from his left knee Wednesday afternoon. He had first started to feel discomfort in the knee during spring training this year. The A's have not yet released information on the specifics of the surgery, but Sogard will most likely return near the end of May.
Sogard (knee) had surgery Wednesday, performed by Dr. James Andrews, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports. Sogard's procedure required the removal of loose bodies from his knee after Dr. Andrews confirmed that he needed surgery Wednesday. The A's will release information on the timetable for Sogard as soon as possible, but it is expected that he will be sidelined through the All-Star break. The utility infielder has yet to play a game in the 2016 regular season.
Sogard (knee) will meet with Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday for a second opinion on whether or not he'll need surgery, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports. It was reported earlier Tuesday that Sogard would in fact need surgery to remove loose bodies from his knee, but he will wait to make a final decision until he can meet with Dr. Andrews. If surgery is ultimately the direction Sogard and the team decide to go in, the timeline would have the utility infielder out through the All-Star break. More information on Sogard's status moving forward figures to be made available following his meeting with Andrews on Wednesday.
