CLEVELAND – The White Sox will be without one of their best defenders for the rest of June.

Austin Jackson is going to need at least a few weeks to recover after undergoing knee surgery on Wednesday.

The team says Jackson had small portions of the medial meniscus in his left knee debrided and removed in Los Angeles.

The Sox utility outfielder will be on crutches for the next two weeks and will be reexamined a month from now.

Two members of the bullpen, Jake Petricka and Daniel Webb, are also headed to the shelf, but for a lot longer than Jackson.

Petricka will likely miss the rest of the regular season after undergoing surgery last Friday to repair the labrum in his right hip.

Webb is out for the year as he tries to come back from Tommy John’s surgery.
