Six month recovery for Gonzalez
The Brewers report that shortstop Alex Gonzalez had surgery today on his right ACL at Froedtert Hospital, performed by Dr. William Raasch. The club projects a six-month recovery, so Gonzalez’s season is over.
The 35-year-old won’t get the 525 plate appearances necessary to vest his option for next season, but the Brewers still could pick it up if they liked Gonzalez and are convinced he’ll come back healthy. He will probably become a free agent instead.
