Michael Cuddyer to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery

Oct 11, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

While cleaning out his locker at Target Field this afternoon Michael Cuddyer revealed that he’s scheduled to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery.
Cuddyer told reporters that his right knee bothered him for “pretty much the whole season,” which perhaps helps explain his hitting just .259/.322/.382 over the final two months. He also struggled defensively after replacing an injured Justin Morneau as the Twins’ everyday first baseman.
Cuddyer earned $8.5 million this season while producing a measly .417 slugging percentage and is owed $10.5 million for next season after the Twins picked up his option rather than exercise a $1 million buyout.

    Of course you probably would have questioned his manliness or his “grit” if he would have taken some time off at some point this season.
    I know you’re just stating facts, and sometimes those facts aren’t positive ones, but those seem to be the majority of what you write about, especially regarding the Twins. You’re not that old, how can you be that bitter about them all the time? We have plenty of other teams to root for now that the Twins are done.
    Go Gophers! Go Wild! Go Wolves! Go Vikes! OK, maybe I answered my own question.
