Granted, if you're a baseball player, and you know you need surgery, scheduling it for January is pretty silly. But if you're a baseball team, especially one that's come off a season with an historical cavalcade of injuries, it's just plain shitty to claim your star player's undergone surgery without your knowledge...especially when you actually DID know about it. Yo Fred: surgery's like being pregnant, you either is or you isn't, and calling during the middle of one to suggest getting a third opinion isn't really an option.
