Haniger out six weeks with knee injury

Mitch Haniger, the promising outfielder selected 38th overall by the Brewers in this year’s First-Year Player Draft, told his Twitter followers that he would miss about six weeks with a partially torn ligament in his right knee. Haniger tweeted a photo of his knee in a brace and said the injury was to his PCL.

That’s a tough break for Haniger, who batted .286 with a home run and eight RBIs in his first 14 games at Class A Wisconsin. The Timber Rattlers’ regular season only runs through Sept. 3, so the Brewers may have to come up with some additional at-bats for Haniger in instructional ball or the Arizona Fall League.
