Helton opted to have the surgery now so he can be ready for the 2013 season.

The 38-year-old Helton ends the 2012 campaign with a .238 batting average, seven home runs and 37 RBIs in 69 games.

The five-time All-Star is the Rockies leader in games played, at-bats, runs scored, hits, doubles, home runs and RBIs.
