He's expected to undergo surgery and miss 6-8 weeks. Unless the Astros somehow manage to come back in the NL Central without him, it seems unlikely that he'll play again in September. The Astros will probably make Darin Erstad their primary left fielder, with Michael Bourn playing regularly in center. Their entire offense takes quite a hit with the news, with Lance Berkman and Miguel Tejada likely to lose value. Hunter Pence may fare better since he'll get to move up in the order.
well that sucks . It isn't easy dropping a guy like lee
