KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -The Royals' Mike Sweeney underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Thursday, but no timetable was given for his return.
Before the surgery, the team said he could be out from two to six weeks.
The oft-injured Sweeney, who is in the final year of a five-year, $55 million contract, has not experienced any of the back problems that put him on the disabled list in years past. Instead, he went on the DL retroactive to June 18 with right knee inflammation.
Sweeney, who had hoped to return to the lineup this week, will meet Friday with team physician Dr. Steve Joyce, who performed the surgery.
