Matt LaPorta underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left hip Thursday.

LaPorta will need three to four months of recovery time, but is expected to be healthy in time for spring training. The former top prospect batted .241 (14-for-58) with one home run, five RBI and a 17/1 K/BB ratio in 22 games with the Indians this season and will enter next year out of options.
