Brewers' outfield prospect Brock Kjelgaard had surgery to repair a broken left foot last week in Milwaukee. He was doing well in the Arizona Fall League, but the season was cut short by the injury.
Kjelgaard suffered the broken foot on October 27th when he fouled a ball off it. Brewers spokesperson John Steinmiller said Kjelgaard returned to Milwaukee for surgery performed by Dr. Richard Marks and should be ready for the start of spring training.
Kjelgaard, a power-hitting former pitcher, was 10-26 (.385) with four home runs and nine RBIs in seven AFL games. He was playing in the AFL to make up for lost at-bats during the regular season, when he was on the disabled list for two months with a broken finger. Kjelgaard missed most of the year with Class AA Huntsville and Class A Brevard County with the broken thumb.
It is unlikely Kjelgaard will spend any time in the Major Leagues next year, as he is working his way up the leagues.
