MINNEAPOLIS -- Manager John Farrell said that he'd spoken with injured reliever Joel Hanrahan, who had season-ending Tommy John surgery on Thursday in Florida.

"He's in a cast, he will be for 10 days, [but] he feels good from the standpoint that the procedure is behind him," Farrell said, adding that Hanrahan will start his rehab in Dallas and will check in periodically with team doctors in Boston.

Hanrahan, who will be a free agent at the end of this season, is expected to miss at least a year recovering from the surgery, which also repaired his flexor tendon.

"Any time you're talking about major surgery for a pitcher, there's no template on their return," Farrell said. "Most importantly, he can rest with some peace of mind [knowing] that everything that could have been done has been by the best of the business."
