New York Yankees catcher Ben Rortvedt is recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.

Team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad performed a meniscus clean-up procedure Tuesday in New York.

Rortvedt, 24, is expected to be sidelined for 6-8 weeks.

He began the season on the 10-day injured list with a strained right oblique muscle. He started a rehab assignment with Class-A Tampa on May 7 but was shut down after two games with discomfort in the knee.

Rortvedt, 24, batted .169 with three homers and seven RBIs in 39 games with the Minnesota Twins last season. He joined the Yankees in a March 13 trade that sent Josh Donaldson and Isiah Kiner-Falefa to New York for Gary Sanchez and Gio Urshela.
