Hart knee surgery complete

UPDATE at 12:25 p.m. CT: Brewers spokesperson Mike Vassallo reports that Dr. William Raasch performed a debridement of the knee joint surface and repaired a “small” meniscal tear. Recovery time is expected to be four months.

I just spoke briefly with Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash, who said he was waiting for a report on the surgery performed today on first baseman Corey Hart’s right knee. That procedure had been delayed a few days while Hart sought a second opinion of his MRI from a specialist in Vail, Colo.

The Brewers typically release information after a player undergoes surgery, so stay tuned Friday afternoon. Assuming it was the same course of action prescribed earlier — a debridement of the right knee joint surface and repair of a meniscal tear — the recovery would take 3-4 months. Ash declined to re-confirm that timeline, pending the surgical report.

Why Did he wait this long to decide to get the surgery??? So he could miss the 1st 2 months of the season! This is laughable….
