If you want to keep him, expect to keep him for awhile in the DL. If it was another type of player, like a 1B, i would have stayed and watched the progress, but as a Catcher (more wear and tear on those poor knees) then it's a different story.
Hopefully, the tear isn't bad enough to require surgery. If it does require surgery, you can expect him to return in around 6 to 8 months.
PS: Dad's a doc (baseball fan as well) and did some research on the injury. Link below:http://www.thestretchinghandbook.com/archives/meniscus-tear.php
