Expos' Segui Put on Disabled List

Montreal Expo first baseman David Segui is expected to be sidelined for four to six weeks after undergoing surgery Wednesday to repair a slight cartilage tear in his left knee.

Segui, 30, who was put on the 15-day disabled list, returned to action Tuesday night against the New York Mets after missing seven games. He was 0 for 4 with two strikeouts, and had trouble running.

"He couldn't play," Montreal Manager Felipe Alou said. "He couldn't swing the bat. Something had to be done."

Segui, a switch-hitter, is batting .327 with six homers and 26 runs batted in. He hit .286 last season with 11 home runs and a career-high 30 doubles in 115 games.

The Expos called up first baseman Ryan McGuire from Ottawa of the International League. McGuire, a left-handed batter, hit .299 with three home runs and 15 RBIs for Ottawa.
