Our Recommendation: Surgery

From "Surgery not a certainty, but Jones has tear in right knee" at ESPN.com:

Andruw Jones underwent an MRI on Monday that revealed a slight cartilage tear in his right knee, and the Dodgers will wait a few days to see if the center fielder will have to undergo surgery.

"Hopefully, I can do it [surgery] in the offseason," Jones said, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Jones was scratched from Monday night's game against Cincinnati because of swelling due to fluid buildup. He said he felt discomfort during the Dodgers' weekend games against the Angels.

No, Andruw, hopefully you can have surgery right now. (I'll drive!) And hopefully the Dodgers have an insurance policy that covers your time on the DL.
