Triunfel injury update

Sorry, I totally forgot to post this earlier. We have injury update on shortstop prospect Carlos Triunfel, who hurt his left leg last week.

Triunfel suffered ligament damage in his left ankle and fractured the fibula in his left leg.

Triunfel had surgery today (Wednesday) to repair damage to the ligament in his left ankle. The surgery also allowed the broken fibula to better line up, which should help the healing process.

The surgery was performed by Mariners team medical director, Dr. Edward Khalfayan. He was assisted by Dr. Martin Mankey, a foot and ankle specialist.

Triunfel will begin his rehabilitation from surgery in Seattle in approximately two days. He is expected to be able to return to baseball activities in four to six months.
