Robertson coming off offseason groin surgery
Tigers president/general manager Dave Dombrowski had referenced surgery for Nate Robertson at an offseason radio interview. Couldn’t get it confirmed by Robertson this winter, but he confirmed it on Wednesday. It was a procedure to repair a torn muscle in his left groin, and it was a problem that had bothered him for much of the season’s second half.
Dr. William Meyers, who performed hernia surgery on Magglio Ordonez in 2005, performed this procedure in mid-November. Robertson says he’s fully recovered now and was able to do a relatively normal offseason routine.
