Moss is going to have the surgery on his knee....He is possibly out for 4 to 6 months, maybe longer, plus rehab...

Quote:
Pirates outfielder Brandon Moss will have knee surgery next Friday that will keep him from playing 4-6 months, possibly longer, general manager Neal Huntington said last night at Miller Park.

The procedure, known as a microfracture, will address bone-on-bone friction in the left knee due to of a lack of cartilage, but it will be performed by Dr. Richard Steadman, the same doctor who examined Moss in Vail, Colo. In a microfracture, tiny holes drilled into the knee to allow room for cartilage to regrow naturally.

"We're not going to have a firm idea of length until Dr. Steadman gets in there and sees what's inside," Huntington said. "Right now, we're hoping to have him back early next spring."
