Punto out 8-12 weeks

Cardinals infielder Nick Punto will be out for approximately 8-12 weeks after being diagnosed with athletic pubalgia, commonly referred to as a sports hernia.
Punto traveled to St. Louis following the club’s workout on Monday and visited a specialist. According to general manager John Mozeliak, Punto will require surgery to repair the condition and will miss the bulk of the first month of the regular season, if not more.
He had been dealing with discomfort in the area of his groin, but remained able to work out. The condition lingered, though, so Punto traveled to see a specialist.
-M.
