After taking a fouled-off ball to the groin area Tuesday, Minnesota Twins catcher Mitch Garver said Wednesday morning he had surgery after he was removed from the game in the Twins' 7-4 loss to the Baltimore Orioles. 

Garver posted the update on his Instagram story.

"I did leave the game last night with a 'groin contusion' and had to go to the emergency room for an ultrasound. The imaging showed I needed surgery," he said.
