SAN DIEGO – Padres left fielder Milton Bradley will miss the rest of the season after he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee when he was spun to the ground by his manager during a blowup with an umpire.
Bradley, who helped spark the wild card-leading Padres during the season’s second half, was ejected from Sunday’s game by first base umpire Mike Winters, then hurt his knee during a bizarre scene when manager Bud Black spun him to the ground to keep him from going after the ump in the eighth inning of a 7-3 loss to Colorado.
A torn ACL is a serious career for any player. In Bradley’s case maybe more so, he’s liable to lose what speed he had. Which the outfielder either doesn’t seem to have much or always underutilized in my opinion.
