Fielder (neck) underwent surgery Friday and will be in a neck brace for the next two weeks before being re-examined, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

Fielder's surgery went as expected and if everything looks right when he gets it checked out two weeks from now, he should begin rehabbing for next season in due time. The 32-year-old had one of the worst years of his career in 2016, hitting just .212/.292/.334 with eight home runs and 44 RBI, and will have a long offseason to clear his mind and recover for 2017.
