MINNEAPOLIS — Yasmani Grandal had surgery to repair a tear in a tendon of his left knee Tuesday, the White Sox said on Wednesday.

Grandal suffered the tear while trying to check his swing in Monday’s game against the Twins, and on Tuesday the Sox said Grandal would be out four to six weeks. The procedure doesn’t necessarily mean he won’t return during that time frame.

“An updated timeline will be provided in the future, although doctors continue to expect Grandal to return during the 2021 regular season,” the Sox said in a statement.

After Grandal was evaluated Tuesday in Chicago, the determination was made for him to have surgery. The procedure was performed at Gold Coast Surgery Center by Nikhil Verma of Midwest Orthopedics at Rush, the Sox’ team doctor, with Shane Nho assisting.

The Sox are going with Zack Collins as their No. 1 catcher. Seby Zavala, called up from Triple-A Charlotte Tuesday, started against the Twins Wednesday afternoon.
