LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers outfielder Alvin Toles underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and will be out for remainder of the season.
Toles injured the knee May 9 trying to chase down Andrew McCutchen's ground-rule double in the left-field corner leading off the seventh inning against the Pirates, which ended Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias' attempt at a no-hitter. Toles was hitting .271 with 17 runs, three doubles, five homers and 15 RBIs.
The surgery was performed by Dodgers' head physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache at the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic, a Cedars-Sinai Affiliate in Los Angeles.
