Juan Nicasio will miss the rest of the season following left knee surgery on Monday.
It was originally announced that Nicasio needed loose bodies removed from the knee, but it turns out that he also required microfracture surgery on the under surface of the patella. It's a tough break for Nicasio, who won a rotation spot out of spring training after suffering a broken neck last August.
I hope this kid can catch a break sometime. He has good stuff!!
