CHICAGO -- Manny Machado will undergo season-ending right knee surgery on Wednesday in Los Angeles, the same corrective procedure he had a year ago on his left knee.

The surgery will once again be performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache -- also the Dodgers' team physician -- who will repair Machado's partially torn medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL). Machado is expected to stay out there for 2-3 weeks before going to the team's spring facility in Sarasota, Fla., to continue his rehab.

The team is hopeful that Machado, who missed the first month of the season last year after undergoing surgery in October, will have more of a regular winter and be ready for Spring Training.
