LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dodgers second baseman Jeff Kent had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday morning and might be able to return to action this month.

Trainer Stan Conte said the outpatient procedure to clean out debris from the cartilage tear on Kent's knee took 20 minutes. No additional problems were discovered. Kent, who is on the disabled list for the eighth time in his big league career, will be able to start the rehabilitation process on Wednesday.
