SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -San Francisco Giants shortstop Omar Vizquel will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his injured left knee.
The 11-time Gold Glove winner is expected to miss four-to-five weeks. Vizquel tested his knee on the field again Tuesday but said the pain was too much to handle. Vizquel will have the operation to repair his torn cartilage on Wednesday in the Bay Area.
Manager Bruce Bochy plans to use Kevin Frandsen at shortstop while the 40-year-old Vizquel is sidelined.
