MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Twins catcher Mitch Garver underwent surgery Tuesday night after leaving the game against the Baltimore Orioles with a groin contusion.

On Instagram, Garver told his followers that the surgery was successful, adding that he stayed the night at the hospital and was recovering.

Garver suffered the injury during a first-inning foul tip. The Twins went on to lose the game 7-4.

Twins Manager Rocco Baldelli said it will probably be a while until Garver is catching again.
