Athletics' Scott Sizemore Will Miss Entire Season With Torn ACL

Tuesday February 28th, 2012

Oakland Athletics third baseman Scott Sizemore will miss the entire 2012 season with a torn ACL in his left knee, according to the Associated Press.

Sizemore was injured Saturday in the A's first full-squad workout at their spring training facility in Phoenix. An MRI confirmed the torn ligament, the team announced today; Sizemore will be re-evaluated in two weeks to see when a date for surgery can be set.

Sizemore, 27, hit .249 with 11 home runs and 52 RBIs in 93 games with the A's last season. He arrived in Oakland via a trade with the Detroit Tigers in May.
