Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera underwent surgery to remove a benign tumor from his spine.

TSN of Canada reported the news on Saturday, revealing the procedure took place last Friday.

Cabrera hasn't played since Aug. 1, when an ankle injury ended his season. Signed to a $16 million contract in the offseason, the 2012 All-Star Game MVP hit .279 with three homers and 30 RBI in 88 games.
