Jose Ortiz to undergo right knee surgery during the off-season?

It seems Jose Ortiz (SOF) may be leaning towards having surgery on his right knee during the off-season.  Ortiz was diagnosed with an injury to his right medial meniscus back on August 5th.  There was talk of him potentially having surgery during the season, but he decided against it in order to get back to the team sooner.

While Ortiz is hoping that he'll be ready to return to the team fully recovered, should he undergo the knife, the team is concerned he might not make it back in time.  As such, it seems they'll also be checking out other foreign players just to be sure.
