Snelling to have knee surgery Wednesday

Chris Snelling is expected to be out about six weeks following the cartilage surgery

The Associated Press

PEORIA, Ariz. – Injury-prone outfielder Chris Snelling of the Seattle Mariners will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair a torn medial meniscus in his left knee, the team announced today.

Snelling, 23, is expected to be out about six weeks following the cartilage surgery.

It's the same knee in which Snelling suffered a torn ACL during the 2001 season.

Snelling, an Australian, had an MRI on the knee last week. The results were announced after Mariners medical director Dr. Larry Pedegana reviewed the MRI in Seattle.

The surgery will be performed by Dr. Matt Maddux of Phoenix.

Snelling missed the entire 2004 season because of surgeries to his right hand and right wrist.

In 2003, he hit .269, with three home runs and 10 RBIs, in 18 games at Triple-A Tacoma and .333, with three homers and 25 RBIs, in 10 games at Double-A San Antonio.
