SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -Cincinnati Reds shortstop Alex Gonzalez has a broken knee.
Team physician Dr. Timothy Kremchek examined Gonzalez on Friday and said the infielder has a compression fracture on his left knee. Gonzalez will be evaluated again in three weeks.
Cincinnati said this week that Gonzalez was expected to miss the first few spring training games because the knee was sore. He sat out an intrasquad scrimmage Tuesday with a bone bruise in the knee. It also bothered him at the end of last season.
Gonzalez hit .272 with 16 homers and 55 RBIs in his first season with the Reds. He didn't start a game after Sept. 12 because of a bone bruise in the same knee.
