Los Angeles Angels player Shohei Ohtani underwent successful surgery on his left knee on Friday, a procedure that will keep him out for the remainder of the season, manager Brad Ausmus said.

Ohtani, who is in his second year in the majors, had the surgery to address bipartite patella, a rare congenital condition in which the bones of his kneecap are unfused. The Angels announced Thursday that a player undergoing the procedure requires between eight to 12 weeks for a full recovery.
