Morton has hip labrum surgury, Opening Day in doubt.

Tim has the breaking news. Very curious when he injured it or if it was more of a wear and tear thing.

UPDATE 7:02p: Apparently the team discovered the injury before this past season but decided to wait to operate rather than losing all of 2011. Sports Illustrated’s Will Carroll seems optimistic on the procedure.

Charlie Morton’s surgery was the FAIL type that Brett Myers and others have had. Great return rate.
FAIL stands for Femoral-Acetabular Impingement of Labrum. You can read more about it here in the entry under David Aardsma.
