Et cetera Caps' Green to have abdominal surgery The Washington Capitals grew accustomed to playing without defenseman Mike Green early in the 2011-12 season, but on Monday they learned that they will be without the two-time Norris Trophy finalist until at least late February. The team announced that Green will undergo abdominal surgery and is expected to miss four to six weeks, with the later time frame projecting to around the NHL's trade deadline Feb. 27. Green missed 23 games and 21/2 months after suffering a right groin strain in mid-November, then aggravated the injury in his second game back in the lineup.

It takes a lot to force Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis from a game. He's played the past few days with a deep purple bruise on his left bicep from taking a pitch there last week in Toronto. When he was recovering from surgery on his right wrist, manager Buck Showalter's toughest task was making sure Markakis didn't sneak off and start swinging a bat prematurely before the stiches from his surgery healed. So when Markakis walked off the field just moments after taking a 92-mph fastball to his left hand, the Orioles dugout knew something was wrong.

Orioles Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson was released from the hospital Friday after abdominal surgery Dec. 28. "The surgery was successful, and I anticipate a full recovery," Robinson, 72, said in a statement issued by spokeswoman Diane Hock. "I have assured my wife, Connie, and my doctors that I will take it easy over the next few months. I thank you for the outpouring of prayers, compassion and concern." Hock said Robinson, who returned to his Baltimore home, considered the surgery routine, and that it was not related to the cancer he battled earlier in the year.

Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis walked into the visting clubhouse of Tropicana Field on Friday afternoon with his right arm in a sling after succesful morning surgery to remove a broken bone from his wrist. Markakis tried to force a smile as he made his way to his locker. “So how was your off day?” shortstop J.J. Hardy joked from the next locker over. “Are you off the anesthesia enough to talk to people?” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said as he walked by moments later as Markakis spoke with reporters.

Hall of Fame Maryland football coach Jerry Claiborne died early yesterday morning at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn., after undergoing what was thought to be successful abdominal surgery on Friday. "Dad was walking around on Saturday," Claiborne's son, Jonathan, said yesterday. "We thought things were going to work out. He had some breathing difficulty Saturday night and then his heart stopped at 12:30 Sunday morning. They tried to resuscitate him but couldn't.

Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis , who is recovering from offseason abdominal surgery, participated in the team's first full-squad workout Friday at the Ed Smith Stadium complex, taking live outdoor batting practice as well as taking part in outfield fielding drills. Markakis said he's far from full strength but feels no pain swinging the bat. If anything, it's his lateral movement while fielding balls that needs improvement. "I know I'm not there, but [I'm] on schedule or maybe a little ahead of schedule, depending on how you look at it," Markakis said.

Some thoughts and observations from the Orioles' series in Anaheim: * Wei-Yin Chen is a major league pitcher. He throws strikes, he's not afraid of the competition. And he has good stuff. When a lefty can throw his fastball in the low-90s and locate it, he can pitch at this level. I also like the fact that Chen had a personal goal of lasting seven innings on Sunday. He didn't get there - he was pulled after 6 1/3 - but going deep into games is an important goal for any starter to have.

SARASOTA, Fla -- Orioles rightfielder Nick Markakis wasn't able to truly test his recovery from offseason abdominal surgery in his Grapefruit League debut against the Pirates Wednesday afternoon at Ed Smith Stadium. But Markakis' return to the lineup was a step forward. "I was just happy to get out there and get some at bats and start this thing off right and get it going in the right direction," Markakis said.   Markakis batted third as the Orioles' designated hitter, and a truer test will come next Tuesday when he's slated to make his first start in rightfield.

Hernias are a common ailment among Americans; more than 4 million people develop the painful condition. And although both men and women develop hernias, female patients may be harder to diagnose. Doctors and patients may not realize the abdominal pain a woman is feeling is because of a hernia. Dr. Hien Nguyen, assistant professor of surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, said the pain can be mistaken for other conditions with similar symptoms, such as adhesions from prior surgery, endometriosis, fibroids and ovarian cysts.
