Trea Turner has surgery on right index finger

MLB.com

Nationals shortstop Trea Turner underwent surgery on his broken right index finger on Saturday, and he shared a photo from his hospital bed on Instagram following the procedure. The 26-year-old broke the finger when he squared to bunt and was hit by a pitch from the Phillies' Zach Eflin on April 2 in Washington.

Turner surprisingly returned to the field six weeks later and played through pain the rest of the season, still managing to hit .298/.353/.497 with 19 home runs and 35 stolen bases during the regular season to help the Nationals reach the postseason and win the first World Series championship in franchise history.
