Did Guillen tear is ACL last year? Cuz when they perform surgery on the ACL they will usually remove a part of the hamstring to insert as a replacement ligament. The player than also has to rehab their hamstring as a result. Could be something worth keeping an eye on.....

They don't remove part of the hamstring. They remove part of the patella tendon.
They do both.
I hope you're trying to be funny.
I've had three knee surgeries on my right knee inluding ACL reconstruction and they do not touch your hamstring.

Repairing the ACL Tear
Surgery to repair a torn ACL is performed as an out-patient procedure. The athlete will report to the facility in the morning and be home before the end of the business day. The treating physician will use an arthroscope to assist in repairing the torn ligament.
The surgeon begins by viewing the torn ligament as a final diagnostic evaluation. Also, the surgeon will inspect the knee for other possible damage. The remains of the ligament are then removed with an arthroscopic shaver. Other damage will be addressed as the procedure continues.
The replacement tissue for the torn ligament can be harvested from the hamstring muscle tendons on the medial (inside) of the knee or from the patellar tendon at the front of the knee. Once the tendon is harvested, it is prepared for the replacement.
I think they use the semi-tendinosus tendon, which is the one that inserts into the fibula. You can feel it on the back, outside part of your knee.
