Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.

Calhoun experienced right knee discomfort multiple times during his offseason training program, and he was sent for an MRI on Tuesday which revealed the meniscus tear.

There’s no official timetable for his return, but a torn meniscus could take up to two to three months for rest and rehab.

His teammate Tim Locastro has been diagnosed with COVID-19, so this will leave the D’Backs with two openings in the outfield for the near future.

Calhoun is on the final year of his two-year, $16 million contract that includes a club option for the 2022 season.
