Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto had surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee, and will be lost to the National League Central Division leaders for three to four weeks.

A medical exam on Monday showed the tear and Votto had the arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday.

The Reds’ best hitter suffered the injury while sliding into third base on June 29 in San Francisco, but had continued to play without any problems.

Cincinnati general manager Walt Jocketty said that Votto did not have an MRI since that time because there was no need for one. The injury started to become reality in the last couple of days.

Votto decided to have the surgery, which only takes 20 to 30 minutes in July, so he can be ready for the “Dog Days” of August and September.

Votto said in a statement, “It is in my best interest and in the best interest of the team to do it now so that I can be healthy during the last two months of the pennant race.”

The 28-year-old Canadian is batting .342 with 14 homers and 49 RBI’s. He is the National League leader in doubles, extra-base hits, on-base percentage and walks.

Linsanity is over for now as Lin tears meniscus

It was not long ago this current NBA season that the New York Knicks had tried out three point guards before settling on Jeremy Lin, who had been cut by Golden State and Houston.

He became an instant world-wide star in the NBA with back-to-back Sports Illustrated covers but now his season has ended.

The 23-year-old Lin will miss the rest of the regular season due to knee surgery that will keep him out of action six weeks. If the Knicks make it to the playoffs, he might be able to comeback in the Eastern Conference finals.

Lin had an MRI recently that showed a small, chronic meniscus tear.

Lin was having a great season for a player who had bounced around for the first few weeks at the start. He averaged 14.1 points, 6.1 assists.

Lin became the first American-born player of Taiwanese or Chinese descent to play in the NBA, and took the Knicks on a seven-game winning streak which was surprising with a team that has Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudamire as its star players.

Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby received some good news earlier this week.

He has been diagnosed with a soft-tissue injury in his neck that resembles the symptoms of a concussion but can be treatable.

He said an MRI and CAT scan showed no evidence of a fracture in his neck.

There is no actual date set in stone for his return to the ice.

Dayton’s Benson tears ACL in left knee ending promising season

An MRI examination revealed that University of Dayton junior forward Josh Benson suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during last night’s 62-50 win over Ole Miss.  The surgery and rehab to repair the injury will put Benson out for the remainder of the 2011-12 season.  The 6-9 junior had started every game this season at forward for the Flyers.
“Everyone in our program feels for Josh right now,” Flyer head coach Archie Miller said.  “He was really playing at both ends of the floor with a confidence that comes from being dedicated to getting better every day.  But he will still have a big role for our team as he comes back from this.  We will need his leadership and enthusiasm with us as we head into conference.

“He knows he has the support of his family, his coaches and his teammates and I expect him to have a big year next season.”
Benson is UD’s second-leading scorer (10.9) and rebounder (5.2,), up from averages of 5.6 and 3.5 a year ago. He leads UD and is fourth in the Atlantic 10 Conference in FG% (.610, 64-105).  He scored seven points and had four rebounds in 11 minutes against Ole Miss before suffering the injury.  Benson had scored in double figures in five of the last six games going into Friday’s contest.
Dayton finished non-conference play at 10-4.

Bailey left Thursday’s 10-4 loss at Philadelphia after four innings with his most recent injury.

In his place on the roster, Mike Leake has been selected from Triple-A Louisville and started Friday against the Braves in Atlanta and won 5-1.
