Eric Milton Undergoes Back Surgery, Likely Done For The Season
Dodgers pitcher Eric Milton, who is on the 15-day disabled list, underwent surgery Tuesday to remove a herniated disk and figures to miss the rest of the season.
Milton has been on the disabled list twice this year with back problems and suffered a major setback last week in New York. The microdiskectomy was performed by Dr. Robert Watkins and Milton is expected to be released from the hospital Wednesday.
