AP: Gallardo confirms he’s having surgery on his right knee

Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo confirmed Friday that he’ll have surgery on the torn ligament in his right knee, likely ending his season. Gallardo said he believes there’s no chance he could avoid the operation on his anterior cruciate ligament, and that it would occur sometime next week.

“I wish I was able to, but I know for sure that I want to be at 100 percent, the last thing I want to do is try to go out there and pitch with it and maybe hurt something with the pressure on it,” Gallardo said.
...
“That sucked the wind out of us,” Melvin said of Gallardo’s injury. “But we can’t let that happen. A lot of teams have injuries. The frustrating part is he and Ben have never been able to pitch on a regular basis for us.”

Gallardo said doctors told him there’s a 98 percent success rate with the surgery, and Gallardo hopes there’s a chance he can return in September or October.
