Brewers pitching prospect Eric Arnett underwent surgery to repair a torn right ACL on Thursday morning.

The procedure will require a recovery time of 5-6 months, which means Arnett can be ruled out for the entire first half of the 2013 season. The former 26th overall pick has battled injuries throughout his professional career. He posted a 3.56 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 61/31 K/BB ratio across 60 2/3 innings last season in High-A ball.

Brewers pitching prospect Eric Arnett is scheduled to visit a team doctor Wednesday about his right knee.

The fear is that the former first-round selection has suffered a torn ACL. Arnett has struggled with injuries throughout his pro career and could miss all of 2013 if he requires a reconstructive knee procedure.

Brewers prospect Eric Arnett will open the year on the disabled list due to a rotator cuff injury.

Arnett won't be allowed to pick up a baseball for a month and is likely to miss the first half of the 2011 season. A first-round selection in 2009, he has a 6.18 career ERA in the minor leagues and has a long way to go as a pitcher. He turned 23 years old in January.

Brewers 2009 first-round pick Eric Arnett was demoted from Class A Wisconsin to rookie ball.

Ouch. Arnett, who was the No. 26 overall selection in 2009, has a 5.93 ERA over his first 26 professional appearances, dating back to last season. He is 0-7 with a 6.87 ERA over his first 12 starts this season. The 22-year-old was expected to move rather quickly in the system, so hopefully there's just something out of whack with his mechanics.

Brewers reassigned Eric Arnett and Kyle Heckathorn to minor league camp.

Both were first-round picks, but neither appeared in a Cactus League game. Arnett, their first-round pick in the 2009 draft, should be able to challenge for a rotation spot next season. The Brewers, in addition, optioned Alex Periard to Double-A Huntsville.

Brewers chose Indiana RHP Eric Arnett with the 26th pick in the draft.

Arnett, a 6-foot-5 right-hander, has a strong low-90s fastball that should generate grounders. He doesn't have a second above average pitch yet, but the Brewers will work with him on his slider and changeup. 26th overall seems about right.
