Recovery is expected to take six weeks after the procedure to repair the right- and left-side core muscles performed by Dr. William Meyers of the Vincera Institute. Cano should be ready in plenty of time for spring training next February.
The injury was diagnosed in late September on Cano's right side, but an MRI revealed a hernia on the other side.
In 156 games this past season for the Mariners, the 32-year-old Cano batted .287 with 21 home runs, 79 RBIs, 82 runs, 34 doubles and one triple. He hit .330 with 17 homers, 55 RBIs and 52 runs in the final half of the 2015 season.
