Rendon had a three-hour operation, according to a Rice press release, performed at The Methodist Hospital in Houston. Dr. Leland Winston and Dr. Tom Clanton performed the operation, and Dr. Clanton said it went better than expected, "since the fracture pattern and ligament injuries were less severed than they originally appeared. We expect Anthony to make a full recovery and be playing baseball for Rice next spring."
Rendon was the 2010 College Player of the Year after batting .394/.530/.801 with 26 home runs, 85 RBIs, 14 stolen bases and just five errors. He's projected as the top prospect for the 2011 draft if he proves to be healthy, though he'll have plenty of competition for the top spot from the likes of UCLA righthander Gerrit Cole and Texas Christian lefty Matt Purke.
“It is my understanding that the surgery went very well,” Rice head coach Wayne Graham said in the release. “We expect a full recovery for Anthony.”
