MILWAUKEE (AP) -Brewers infielder Tony Graffanino will miss the rest of the season because of an injured right knee.
Graffanino came down awkwardly after leaping to catch a line drive in the first inning of Wednesday's game in Colorado. He underwent an MRI examination in Milwaukee on Thursday that revealed a torn ligament.
The Brewers will place him on the 15-day disabled list Friday, and he will undergo surgery at a later date.
Milwaukee will recall struggling second baseman Rickie Weeks from Triple-A Nashville to fill Graffanino's roster spot. Weeks, who was batting .212 when he was optioned on July 31, was 10-for-22 with three RBIs in six games at Nashville.
