Andruw Jones to go ahead with surgery
By Tony Jackson on May 24, 2008 7:01 PM

it's an arthroscopic procedure, called a debridement, to repair a tear of the medial meniscus (that's cartilage, from what I understand) in his right knee. He'll be out four to six weeks, and while the down time might not help him, it certainly isn't going to hurt him -- or the Dodgers -- given the year he is having. Surgery will be performed by team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache. Jones was placed on the 15-day DL just before game time. The club will purchase the contract of versatile utility man Terry Tiffee, who is having an outstanding season at Triple-A Las Vegas. To make room for him on the 40, Nomar goes to the 60-day DL, which tells you won't be back ANYTIME soon.

It's kind of old news (a couple of days old), given that this was the likely scenario for Andruw anyway. No excuse for a platoon controversy while most importantly, getting Furcal back will be a massive boost as our offense has stagnated some without him.

Any news on when Furcal gets back? Didn't he have a setback recently?

Raffy has had back flare-ups for just about the last couple of weeks. Supposedly, he's in a rehab program to strengthen and stabilize his back. This stint will cause him to miss this coming week's road trip for sure.
