Just got an e-mail from the Dodgers p.r. staff regarding pitcher Eric Milton:
Eric underwent micro diskectomy on his low back this morning. The surgery was performed by Dr. Robert Watkins. The surgery went as expected and the disk herniation was removed. The expected return to baseball competition will be at least three months and he will start the first parts of the rehab program, which will entail mostly walking, in the next few days. He should be out of the hospital by tomorrow.
