Los Angeles Angels first baseman Kendry Morales will have surgery Thursday to repair lower fibula breaks and a serious high-ankle issue. Morales is expected to be able to return in 20111 but there is no guarantee he will be back this season.

Morales injured himself while celebrating his walk-off grand slam against the Mariners on May 29. He is hitting .290 with 11 home runs and 31 RBIs for the Angels, who have won nine of 11 since his injury to move into second place in the AL West, just a half-game out of first entering Thursday's game in Oakland.
