    Milton headed to surgery, DL

    Per Marc's blog...

    http://frontier.cincinnati.com/blogs/spring/

    Milton to have surgery

    MILWAUKEE -- Early word this morning that Eric Milton will have arthroscopic surgery tomorrow to "debride the meniscus in his left knee," according to the Reds. Doc Kremchek will do the deed, of course. The injury apparently was revealed in an MRI taken last night.

    This obviously means a DL trip for Milton, though nothing official has been said about that. Though it would require a 40-man move, my best guess is Darrell May joining the club by tomorrow. That's just a guess, though.

    More later, I assume...

    Hopefully it fixes the problem and allows him to continue his hot start (minus Tuesday night).

    I would guess since they're scoping it, it won't be too terrible long.

    If they just debride it, shouldn't be more than 3-4 weeks hopefully, maybe less.

    He's got an injury history on the knee -- I'd be wary of making prognostications one way or the other until they finish stitching him back up.

    This could be something relatively quck, or we could not see Milton for quite some time. Either way, it puts a gaping hole in a rotation that was already bleeding with Dave Williams at the back end, who now becomes the 4th starter.

    Not for nothing, but no matter what Milton has done to this team over the last 1+ years, we still cannot be too happy about this. Darrell May is replacing him. May has had one season in his career with an era under 5.27. Think about that. At least Uncle Milty has has a little success in his life. Last year May had a 6.81 era in 66 innings. That makes Milton look positively Gibson-like. Kriv better be running up his cell phone bill or else this summer will be a lot longer than any of us ever anticipated.

    It looks like the Lizard will be the man to replace him. I just hope we aren't rushing him too fast after his performance last year when he was up for a brief while:

    From Marc's blog:

    Looking like EZ

    MILWAUKEE -- Let's get the disclaimer out of the way:

    "We have not decided 100 percent who's going to be here," said Jerry Narron. "I really don't know."

    Nonetheless, a decision on tomorrow's starter is forthcoming, and it looks as if Elizardo Ramirez is the leader in the clubhouse. Though he's not scheduled to pitch until Tuesday for Louisville, he wouldn't be on short rest; his last start came Wednesday. And he's already on the roster, which makes it much easier.

    Narron joked that he tried to ask Krivsky for Homer Bailey, but "he stopped me before the 'H'"

    May's 6.81 ERA last year is "Milton-like" as far as I am concerned, as DanO traded for a damaged Milton who will never again see his days of league averageness. So, yeah, May blows. But he's replacing a pitcher who blows, so, well, it will just seem like more of the same.

    I would be a lot more upset if he were replacing Harang or Arroyo in the rotation.

    Edit:

    If it's the Lizard, that's even better. I get to hold a tiny amount of hope for him and the change that Soto was supposedly teaching him.

    From the looks of the amount of replies to this thread, most folks around here saw this one coming. The knee's been the culprit for Milton for a while now.
