    Gallardo to have knee surgery

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/spring...ory?id=3250617

    PHOENIX -- Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo has torn cartilage in his left knee and is expected to miss the first four weeks of spring training.

    Gallardo will return to Milwaukee on Monday and have the arthroscopic procedure Tuesday. He then will return to the Brewers' camp to begin physical therapy.

    Brewers spokesman Tyler Barnes said Sunday the right-hander had discomfort a few days ago after a throwing session. His knee swelled up afterward.

    The 22-year-old Gallardo, expected to be a main cog in the Brewers rotation, was 9-5 with a 3.57 ERA in 20 games last season, including 18 starts.

    that's a huge blow as he likely won't make a start before May, and it may be mid May.

    um... yippee?

    so that might get Capuano back into the rotation to start the year. Also saying we play them 6 times in the first month maybe it is good for us.

    Remember their starting pitching "surplus"? right...
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."
