Twins shortstop Pedro Florimon was released from a Ft. Myers hospital on Tuesday just a day after undergoing laparoscopic surgery to remove his appendix.

Florimon had the procedure Monday afternoon. The team says he is expected to be out for two weeks and then will have to take it slow upon his return.

"He's going to be pretty limited on activities for at least two weeks," Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said. "And then it'll be a build up process. He'll need all of Spring Training to get ready."

The Pioneer Press reports Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said his availability for Opening Day of the regular season is not in question.

Florimon was taken to the Lee County Hospital emergency room around 2 a.m. Monday after he complained of stomach pain. He was fine on Sunday but started to feel the pain on Sunday night.

He hit .221 with nine home runs in 134 games for the Twins last season.
