Free-agent outfielder Michael Conforto expected to miss remainder of MLB season after shoulder surgery

USATSI

Free-representative outfielder Michael Conforto went through shoulder surgical treatment recently and is not anticipated to go back to play up until next spring, according to Jon Heyman of the New York Post

Conforto’s representative, Scott Boras, provided the following declaration to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic: “Last week Michael Conforto underwent successful shoulder surgery by Dr. Neil ElAttrache. He is expected to make a full recovery and return to play in spring training 2023.”

Conforto, 29, supposedly suffered an injury to his shoulder after landing “irregularly” throughout an exercise drill previously this winter season. He initially tried to let his shoulder recover without going through an operation. Clearly that course didn’t work, and he just recently chose to alter course.

Conforto, who denied a certifying deal worth $18.4 million from the New York Mets to start last winter season, got in the offseason ranked by CBS Sports as the 23rd finest complimentary representative readily available. Here’s what we composed at the time:

There might not be a great time for a gamer to have an underwhelming season, however there is a hard time. Conforto found out that lesson the difficult method by striking .202/.341/.298 in the very first half of his walk year. Though he rebounded to a degree in the 2nd half (.252/.347/.445), his possibilities of moneying in this winter season were currently rushed. Conforto, it ends up, might disagree with that evaluation. He seemed an apparent prospect to accept the certifying deal, however a report from last month showed that he planned to decrease and look for something much better on the free market. Good luck.

Conforto had a frustrating walk year with the Mets, striking simply .232/.344/.384 (101 OPS+) with 14 crowning achievement in 125 video games. For his big-league profession, he’s batted .255/.356/.468 (124 OPS+) with 132 crowning achievement in 2,980 journeys to the plate.
