White Sox CF Austin Jackson has surgery on left knee

CLEVELAND -- Chicago White Sox center fielder Austin Jackson underwent surgery on his left knee Wednesday and will be re-examined in four weeks.

Jackson, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list June 10, had a small portion of the medial meniscus removed and will be on crutches for two weeks. The surgery was performed in Los Angeles.

Jackson suffered the injury June 9 when he stepped awkwardly on a base during Chicago's 3-1 victory over the Washington Nationals.

Jackson, 29, signed with the White Sox in the offseason. He's batting .254 with 18 RBIs and two stolen bases in 54 games.
