BOSTON -- Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino has undergone surgery to release a nerve in his right thumb.

Boston said Dr. Thomas Graham operated in Cleveland and that Victorino is expected to be ready to participate in spring training.

Victorino hit .294 with 15 homers, 61 RBIs and 21 stolen bases in his first season with the Red Sox, and his three-run double off the Green Monster sparked the Red Sox to their Game 6 win over St. Louis and their third World Series title in 10 seasons.
