Kendrick isn't hindered by offseason surgery

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Angels second baseman Howie Kendrick underwent a minor surgical cleanup of his right elbow this offseason, manager Mike Scioscia said on Monday.
The procedure, which was conducted shortly after the end of the regular season, isn't expected to limit Kendrick during Spring Training, with Scioscia saying Kendrick is "100 percent, full-go."
"He's had some bouts with his elbow, I think, periodically, but it was never anything that really inhibited him," Scioscia said. "Howie's played a lot, he's played well and he's played through some stuff. It just, I think, got to a point where he wanted some things cleaned out."
