Mariners outfielder Milton Bradley was placed on the disabled list in late July with a diagnosis of patellar tendinitis in his right knee. Soreness, in other words. On Saturday, the issue got a bit more serious.
According to Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times, Bradley will undergo exploratory surgery on his right knee Tuesday and is likely to miss the remainder of the 2010 season. Because the procedure isn’t totally defined, there’s no way of knowing if he can totally be ruled out. But he’ll need to rest and rehab for at least six weeks and the calendar is moving awfully close to October. Bradley was asked Saturday about a possible return date:
“I’ve got nothing to say,” he replied.
The 32-year-old turned in a .205/.292/.348 batting line, eight home runs and 29 RBI over 244 at-bats this season. He’s under contract for $12 million in 2011, but he had a poor showing this year and the Mariners may try to move him this winter in a salary dump. At least, that would make sense.
