Indians lose Grilli for season, Brown for 8 weeks

Mar 12, 2010, 3:44 PM EDT

Last week two Indians players went down with injuries during the same workout and now we know the damage.
Outfield prospect Jordan Brown will miss 4-8 weeks following surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. Brown was competing for a bench job following a breakout 2009 season in the minors, but instead the 26-year-old former fourth-round pick will head back to Triple-A after rehabbing.
Jason Grilli will likely miss the entire season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn right quadriceps muscle, which is a tough blow for the 33-year-old former No. 4 overall pick turned journeyman who was trying to win a spot in the Indians’ bullpen on a minor-league contract.

    Jordan Brown’s 4-8 week timetable for a knee ‘scope sounds much more realistic than Lance Berkman’s 2-4 weeks.
