BOSTON (AP) — Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts has undergone arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

The team announced the procedure on Friday, saying it included repair of cartilage and loose fragment removal.

He is expected to make a full recovery in time for spring training, which opens Feb. 14 for the Red Sox.

Betts is coming off a career season in which he was chosen an All-Star for the first time, posting career-high marks in batting average (.318), home runs (31) and RBIs (131).

He was also a Gold Glove and Silver Slugger winner, becoming the seventh Red Sox player to earn both awards in the same season.
