Brewers.com is reporting that top Center Field prospect Lorenzo Cain will not need surgery on his torn left PCL.
This is a major relief for a player who really needs to play to develop. Cain is not a J.J. Hardy type of prospect that can jump a level in the minors despite missing a year with a major injury.
Brewers Assistant GM Gord Ash said that Cain should return to the field in 4-6 weeks. That means Lo will have to wait until June to get his first hit of the season, in the four games he did play he was 0-14.
If he develops like many of us hope he can, a September call-up may still be possible.
