There’s a distinct possibility that McIlrath’s x-ray showed something that wasn’t going to fix itself, like a bone fragment in the joint. If that were the case, it would be an arthroscopic fix (tiny cameras stuffed into the knee through tiny incisions), with about a four to six week recovery. The fact that the Rangers aren’t floating a timeline for his return is either the Rangers being the Rangers, or a hint that he had more than just a simple arthroscopic joint cleanout – something like a tendon or ligament repair, or a fractured patella.
