Andruw Jones: The Struggles Now Require Surgery

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ The Los Angeles Dodgers placed center fielder
Andruw Jones on the 15-day disabled list because of an injured
right knee that will require surgery and sideline him at least 4 to
6 weeks.
Jones signed a two-year, 36.2-million-dollar contract last
winter after 12 good seasons with the Atlanta Braves. He has
struggled in Los Angeles. The five-time All-Star and 10-time Gold
Glove winner is hitting .165 with two homers and seven RBIs in 43
Now the club is going to invest 4-6 weeks of recuperatory time
in the 31-year-old slugger, who will be on the DL for the first
time in his career.
