Toronto Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista underwent a season-ending operation in Cleveland yesterday to stabilize a tendon sheath in his left wrist, which the team has announced was a "success", reports Shi Davidi of Sportsnet:

Bautista, 31, originally suffered the wrist injury swinging the bat in a game against the Yankees on July 16. After resting and rehabbing his wrist for a month, the slugger attempted to make a comeback but only lasted three innings before re-aggravating the injury and returning to the disabled list.

Recovery time for the procedure is about five months, which should put Bautista on track for the beginning of Spring Training if he does not experience any setbacks. The two-time reigning home run champion hit .241/.358/.527 with twenty-seven home runs in ninety-two games on the season.
