Mo Vaughn's career could be over -- especially if he undergoes major knee surgery.

Vaughn, 35, has an arthritic left knee. He has no cartilage in part of the knee, causing bone to rub against bone and pain that is too intense to play through. He was put on the disabled list on May 2, and has not played since. In 79 at-bats this season, Vaughn is hitting just .190 with three homers.

All six of the doctors Vaughn consulted recently recommend knee replacement surgery, which would certainly end Vaughn's career, ESPN's Peter Gammons reports. Vaughn is waiting for another month and will attempt to get his knee flushed (arthroscopic surgery) in the hopes that knee replacement surgery could be avoided.

The agent for Mo Vaughn (1B) NYMets confirmed last night that Vaughn will have arthroscopic surgery on his ailing knee, according to the New York Daily News. "He'll wait 30-45 days and then have (the knee) scoped out," agent Jeff Moorad said. Vaughn will miss the rest of this season and hopes to be able to play at some point next year.
