(John Munson | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com) By Abbey Mastracco email@example.com, NJ Advance Media for NJ.com NEW YORK -- Yankees' star slugger Aaron Judge underwent surgery on his shoulder on Monday in Los Angeles, but it's not as dire as it sounds. In fact, it's probably not much to worry about at all. The team announced the AL Rookie of the Year underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left, non-throwing shoulder with Dodgers' team doctor Neal ElAttrache on Monday to remove loose bodies and clean up cartilage. It's about as routine as baseball surgeries come, and his rehab will be completed before the start of spring training. Odds-on favorite to be next Yanks' manager It's a very common procedure for baseball players to have around this time of year. The rehab is not extensive and if all goes well, he should be cleared for baseball activities in a few months. If there are any setbacks, it may affect the time of year he's able to pick up a bat. And as a right-handed hitter, he does derive some power from the left side, but most it of is coming from his right side and his lower half. Ideally, Judge should be able to start the rehab process in a few weeks. He may be a little further behind physically than he usually would by the time he reports to spring training, but not by much, if all goes well. Yankees' 2017 MLB GM Meetings wrap The surgery was performed at the Kerlan-Jobe clinic in West Los Angeles. Dr. ElAttrache, one of the most highly-regarded upper-extremity specialists in sports, also performed shoulder surgery on Mets outfielder Michael Conforto in September at Kerlan-Jobe. Judge, who slashed .284/.422/.627 with 52 home runs in 2017, was unanimously voted Rookie of the Year and finished second in AL MVP voting behind Houston's Jose Altuve.
