Former Hart High shortstop Chris Valaika, now an infileder with the Cincinnati Reds, has torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and is out for the remainder of the 2011 season.
Valaika was hurt in the fifth inning of the Reds game Sunday against the Colorado Rockies when his spikes got caught in the dirt as he was swinging at a pitch. He singled and stayed in the game briefly before leaving.
Valaika is scheduled to undergo surgery next week to repair the damage. He expects to be ready for spring training, which is only five months away.
Valaika was hitting .280 in the 14 games he played with the major league club. He was called up for a second time this season on September 2nd when rosters were expanded.
