Athletics | Grant Balfour doing well

Oakland Athletics RP Grant Balfour (knee) is already getting treatment after his knee surgery Friday, Feb. 15, and the swelling in his knee is already gone, enabling him to bend his knee completely. He is walking and standing without crutches and feels great, but he doesn't want to rush his progress. Dr. Doug Freedberg told Balfour that his knee looked great and a small patch of meniscus was shaved down. He's hoping to miss four weeks. Balfour said he could have pitched with the injury, but there was pain with sharp lateral movements.
