DENVER (AP) _ Colorado Rockies pitcher Pedro Astacio needs surgery on his left knee and will miss the final week of the season.

``I’ve had some pain in there the past two years,″ said Astacio, already sidelined by strained ribcage muscles. ``It’s not bad. We’ll just get it fixed up and we’ll be ready to go in spring training.″

Astacio, 12-9 with a 5.27 ERA, threw on the side Friday and felt soreness in the knee the following day.
