Galaxy’s Jonathan dos Santos to miss tournament due to hernia surgery

Galaxy midfielder Jonathan dos Santos will miss the upcoming MLS is Back Tournament due to an upcoming scheduled hernia surgery.

Dos Santos, 30, will undergo “minimally invasive hernia surgery”  Thursday at Cedars-Sinai Kerlan Jobe Institute. He is expected to be out for six weeks.

The Galaxy is scheduled to depart for Orlando and the tournament Monday, and is scheduled to play in Group F July 13 against the Portland Timbers.

The most likely replacement for dos Santos’ defensive midfield role is Perry Kitchen.

Dos Santos was slowed by injuries back at the start of the season. He missed the season opener Feb. 29 and played just 45 minutes March 7 in the second game of the season.
