Just 10 days after he underwent minor knee and foot surgery, Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau also had minor surgery on his left wrist on Friday morning.

Morneau underwent a stabilization procedure on the tendon in the back of his left wrist, general manager Bill Smith said in an email. Morneau will be in a cast for six weeks. This is the same wrist that landed Morneau on the disabled list in June.

Along with recovering from his three surgeries, Morneau is also still trying to shake concussion symptoms that popped back up about a month ago.

Nick Blackburn and Ben Revere also underwent surgeries on Friday. Revere had his left knee cleaned out, and Blackburn had a procedure done to help relieve discomfort from Radial Tunnel Syndrome that caused a decompression of the radial nerve.

Blackburn will be in a splint for six weeks, and he likely won't be able to resume workouts for another couple weeks after that.

All three players are expected to be ready for spring training.
