SAN DIEGO (AP) -Padres left fielder Milton Bradley tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee when he was spun to the ground by his manager Sunday during a blowup with an umpire and will miss the rest of the season.
The diagnosis came from an MRI exam, according to a person with knowledge of the situation, who spoke Monday on condition of anonymity.
Bradley, who helped spark the wild-card leading Padres during the season's second half, was ejected by Mike Winters and then hurt his knee during a bizarre scene when manager Bud Black spun him to the ground to keep him from going after the first base umpire in the eighth inning of Sunday's 7-3 loss to Colorado.
The Padres entered Monday night's game at San Francisco with a one-half game lead over Philadelphia in the wild-card race.
