PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle is set to undergo more off-season surgery.

Hurdle underwent hip replacement surgery just days after last season ended back in October.

It was a painful problem he dealt with the entire season.

“It was a situation I discussed with our medical team that I thought we could manage,” Hurdle said last year. “This one didn’t work out anywhere near as close to how we thought it would work out. It got dramatically worse, quicker than anticipated. It’s very arthritic, it’s bone on bone.”

About a month later, after the surgery, he was feeling well enough to talk with us.

“The hip is fine. It’s going to get better,” he told KDKA’s Rich Walsh in early November. “I’m a Pittsburgher. I’m going to roll up my sleeves and I’m going to do the rehab and the physical therapy and get it right and I won’t have to limp anymore.”

Now, Hurdle says he’ll undergo a second hip replacement on the other side, his left side.

He says it’s happening Wednesday.
