LeMahieu underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia Tuesday but is expected to be ready for spring training, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

LeMahieu missed time in the final week of the regular season with the injury and wound up being placed on the injured list. While the issue was serious enough to require surgery, it's at least well-timed and gives LeMahieu plenty of time to rest and recover over the offseason. If all goes well, he'll be unaffected by the start of the regular season, but there's always going to be at least some risk with a 33-year-old coming off an offseason procedure.
