Will Phillies’ Andrew McCutchen still be elite after return from knee surgery?

April 9th, 2020

"...McCutchen also learned not to take any shortcuts in his rehab and to derive satisfaction from baby steps. It’s probably why he didn’t object to the Phillies’ plan of placing him on the season-opening injured list. McCutchen, who signed a four-year, $50 million contract before last season, had not yet tested his knee in a game situation when spring training was suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Medical experts agree that typical recovery time from ACL surgery is 10 months. But it usually takes an extra month or two before a baseball player can expect to be back to game speed, according to Conte."
