Matt LaPorta 1B BAL Nov 21 '78

Matt LaPorta admitted Sunday that his surgically-repaired left hip was an issue for him throughout the season.

The condition was so bad that LaPorta wondered some morning how he was able to walk. The 28-year-old had a procedure on the hip in October and enters spring training ready to go, but he'll have to fight for a roster spot after being removed from the 40-man roster over the winter.
