Twins: Kubel to have knee surgery

by Fanball Staff -
Saturday, October 23, 2004

Twins' outfielder Jason Kubel will undergo surgery next week to repair his injured left knee. Kubel sustained substantial ligament damage to his knee in an outfield collision during an Arizona Fall League game on Wednesday. Twins' general manager Terry Ryan told the Associated Press on Friday night that Kubel tore his anterior cruciate ligament but added, "It's more extensive than just the ACL." There's a chance Kubel could miss the entire 2005 season. "It's going to be a long haul," Ryan added.

Scratch Kubel from your fantasy plans for 2005. Not only does the injury raise serious questions about the future of one of the Twins' best prospects, it also might alter some of their offseason plans. Will Jacque Jones, who is arbitration-eligible and rumored to be on the trading block, remain a Twin now?
