HOUSTON -- Brewers shortstop Alex Gonzalez underwent surgery to repair the ACL in his right knee Thursday at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee. The surgery was performed by Dr. William Raasch. Gonzalez has a six-month expected recovery time.
"It went well," said Brewers assistant GM Gord Ash.
Outfielder Carlos Gomez began a rehab assignment with Class-A Wisconsin last night, going 0-for-3 with a run scored. Gomez started in center field and played five innings.
"He ran well," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said of Gomez, who is expected back with the Brewers on Sunday. "Hopefully he'll be swinging like he was swinging before he got hurt. If he's swinging like he was before, he's going to get more playing time.
"Certainly he'll be in there against left-handers. But if he's swinging like he was before, we'll put him in a lot more against right-handers."
Right-handed pitcher Brandon Kintzler continues rehab of his right elbow.
"He's going to go see Dr. Raasch tomorrow and hopefully report to Huntsville," Ash said. "He said he felt fine, just wanted to check with the doctor, so we organized that for tomorrow."
