CHICAGO, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- Chicago White Sox outfielder Aaron Rowand Wednesday was set for surgery in California after breaking two ribs and his left scapula earlier this month in an off-road dirt bike accident.
Rowand broke a rib on each side and his scapula while bruising his left shoulder.
"I feel pretty good about being back in time, as long as therapy goes well," Rowand told the Arlington Heights (Ill.) Daily Herald. "There's no reason to believe I won't be 100 percent. My dirt bike days are over. It's going to be sold."
The White Sox said he should be ready for spring training, but added that a better diagnosis will be available after the surgery.
This past season, Rowland, who resides in Glendora, Calif., not far from Las Vegas, hit .258 with seven home runs and 29 RBI in 126 games, taking over as the starting centerfielder in late July.
