NEW YORK (AP) — New York Yankees relief pitcher Alfredo Aceves is expected to miss the start of spring training after breaking his left collar bone in a bicycle accident in Mexico.

The Yankees say Aceves had surgery Tuesday in New York. The right-hander will need three months for full rehabilitation. Aceves was 3-0 in 10 games last season before a strained lower back in mid-May sidelined him for the rest of the year.

The Yankees also said Wednesday that outfielder Brett Gardner is set for surgery next Tuesday on his right wrist for tendinitis. He is expected to be ready when spring training starts in mid-February.
